YUMA, AZ- It’s been a long time coming for The Salvation Army of Yuma and they’ve finally raised enough funds to get the project up and running.
In less than two years, the salvation army was able to raise the majority of the funds to help give the building a new facelift.
During the celebration this afternoon the kids sang a song to open up the ceremony. In attendance were local officials including Senator Pancrazi and Mayor Nicholls.
The non-profit also recognized some of the donors and members of the salvation army board who have worked very hard in making this all happen.
The club is going to be entirely brand new from the inside-out. Major Randy Harrt tells us what to expect with the new renovations.
Harrt said, “The expansion is going to be a new 3,000 foot building. It’s going to have a theater area for the kids to do performances and things like that. It’ll also be a multi-purpose room so it’s versatile. It’ll have a little conference center with a couple other classrooms.”
They’re shooting for an early to late spring dedication of the buildings and finished product.
