Yuma Crossing kicks off month-long campaign for Giving Tuesday

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area (YCNHA) is kicking off their annual month-long campaign to raise $75,000.

According to a press release, this is to support Yuma's youth. YCNHA also says that while they received a grant to develop and provide an all-expenses paid Yuma Live History Adventure field trips to third and fourth grade students within Yuma County, "the grant funding will not last forever."

"So they are learning about Science, Math and Engineering. they are very interactive field trips. They're going to learn how to build the dam and how the telegraph works and Morse code," said Cathy Douglas, Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area Executive Director.

With this in mind, YCNHA is asking for the community to help them continue to offer the program to Title I schools within the county.
