YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY)-Dozens of devoted community members stood out in the blazing hot sun to donate more than 900 backpacks filled with school supplies to families in need just in time for the new school year.
Members met in front of the Applebee's located at 1100 E. 16th Street from 8 a.m. until noon.
