Prescott Noon Lions collecting food for Yarnell residents
The Prescott Noon Lions club will conduct an emergency food drive Wednesday to benefit Yarnell residents and deliver the food, said Buz Williams, the club's new president.
Williams said the suggestion for the food drive came from the district governor of Lions, who approached the Prescott club because Yarnell does not have a Lions club and the club in Wickenburg is too small.
The food drive will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Albertsons on Sheldon and Marina streets, the Fry's supermarkets at Miller Valley and at Willow Creek roads, the Safeway stores on White Spar and on Willow Creek roads, and at Costco on Highway 69.
The Lions members will gather the food in trailers and deliver the food to Yarnell, Williams said.
