ChildLight Yoga Brings Energy to Youth of Coconino County

Last year, the Bisbee Coalition for the Homeless fed about 19,000 meals to the hungry in its community. This year, it aims to exceed that number by 10 to 15 percent, thanks to a donation from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ).

The donation will be used to transport meals, food bags and personal care items to approximately 4,000 additional people who would not have received services otherwise.

“It would be a terrible understatement to say that we are merely grateful for this wonderful contribution from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona,” said Tony Bedolla, executive director of Bisbee Coalition for the Homeless. “This unexpected gift will allow us to reach out to those who are unable to receive our services simply because they are unable to come to the shelter. We are overwhelmed by this act of generosity.”
