The Cocopah Indian Tribe has stepped up to help the Yuma Community Food Bank with a donation of $50,000. The money will be distributed in quarterly payments beginning June 2012 and complete by June 2013.
The Tribal Council is extremely impressed with the work the YCFB does serving the hungry in Yuma with 24,436 people in May of 2012. Cocopah Councilman Carlos Pereyra said, “The stories that were shared regarding services provided by YCFB resonated with the Council.”
Mike Ivers, President and CEO of the YCFB said, “We are excited about this very generous contribution to the war on hunger in Yuma. The Cocopah Indian Tribe is a valuable partner of Yuma Community Food Bank in this vital battle.” Ivers says funds will go towards general operations.
After the check presentation, Councilman Pereyra gave YCFB Board Members a tour of the Cocopah Museum.
