A local nonprofit is auctioning off some incredible prizes

Crossroads Mission

The Crossroads Mission kicks off its month-long auction

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The pandemic may have changed people's daily routines and may even have slowed some things down, but the need for help continues to grow and facilities like the Crossroads Mission are at capacity.

Crossroads Mission is much more than a homeless shelter, along with helping those to stay out of the elements, they help local families and those fighting against addiction.

But, the facility is busting at the seams and even with the aid of temporary shelters, the need continues to grow. Sadly, the mission was struck with an unpredictable occurrence, a ruptured pipe caused costly damage.

That setback meant that the mission's plans to build a men's shelter would have to be placed on hold. During the summer months donations to nonprofits like the mission are low, adding a pandemic to the mix and the situation is dire.

So, the staff at the mission have their work cut out for them. They have to reach out and call on the public for help. Donations are always preferred, but sadly some don't see kindness as a worthy investment.

In an effort to generate funds the mission has held events and sold food to help. And, starting Friday, April 29, the mission will launch its online auction.

Thanks to generous benefactors and sponsors the mission has assembled items sure to get the public's interest. From game consoles to antiques and even camping equipment the mission is hoping to bring in big money.

The auction will go on from now on until May 27th. In order to bid all you have to do is create a Ready-Set-Auction account (enter 85364 area code when prompted).

While setting up, you can provide your email or cell phone number to track if someone else has outbid you. In the end, this fundraiser is a win, win.

The mission is always looking for donations whether food, clothing, or monetary. Donations can be dropped off at their site (944 S. Arizona Avenue) or you can visit the mission's website and make a donation there.
