The Salvation Army Opens Two Assistance Centers in Yarnell, AZ

Two weeks after Arizona’s Yarnell Hill fire erupted on June 28, destroying more than 100 homes and burning 13 square miles, The Salvation Army continues to serve affected residents, first responders, incident personnel and evacuees through nourishment of body, mind and soul.

Fallen firefighters were brought home in a stirring five-hour processional Sunday.

The Salvation Army was present for the processional of the fallen firefighters outside the Prescott Corps.

The Salvation Army opened two assistance centers today for Yarnell residents to find physical, emotional, and spiritual care, where services include food, clothing, clean-up kits, utility assistance and temporary housing. Residents seeking assistance can visit the Yarnell Community Presbyterian Church (16455 W Table Top Way Yarnell, AZ 85362) or the State Individual Assistance Center (IASC) (22302 State Route 89) between the hours of 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM daily.

“The Salvation Army is honored to serve the individual’s providing logistical support for the memorial service” said Captain Randy Hart, Incident Commander for The Salvation Army. “Our hearts go out to the families of this community because we know them and we love them. We are humbled to help in any way we can.”
