Yuma continues to rally for the Crossroads Mission

In March, the nonprofit reached out to the community asking for water donations

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - As the mercury began to rise and people sought refuge from the heat, the need for water also rose. So, the Crossroads Mission reached out asking the public for help.

Scrolling through the mission's social media pages, you can see picture after picture of local groups, companies, and citizens donating what they could. From a trunk full to a truck bed full the Yuma community has shown its true colors.

The latest, is Yuma's own Southwest Street Scene Car Club. Back in May, they began accepting water donations.

On Saturday, June 5, 2021, members of Southwest Street Scene met at Flightline Mazda-Mitsubishi which also sponsored the drive and caravaned to the mission. They joined by members of the public and other clubs.

In total, the group donated just shy of 300 cases of water. When asked why they decided to donate to the mission, members simply said that, if there's a need, they'd do whatever is necessary to help fill it.
