LOCALLY ...

2022 marks the 4th year that the Yarnell Regional Community Center has participated in the nationally celebrated March for Meals.

Here in the Weaver Mountains, volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers deliver nearly 1000 meals a month to SO+ homebound individuals and seniors. We feed people immediately when the need comes to our attention. Check-in phone calls are part of our weekly program as well. Approximately $3600 a month comes from our partners Northern Area Council of Governments (NACOG), which barely covers food costs. The balance - for salaries, utilities, permits, insurance, etc. comes from YRCC's fundraising efforts: donations, grants, Thrift Store income and special events like March for Meals.

Your being here today helps to help keep our clients healthy and living in their homes!

Your support means so much to our clients and to the team that makes it all happen. We welcome you to join the YRCC volunteer team: making phone calls or delivering meals to the homebound, work at the Thrift Store or help with building! improvements.
