This year’s event consists of three components: a drive-through event distributing 500 art supply kits 10 a.m. to noon April 10 at Gateway Park; a virtual celebration at 2 p.m. April 10 on the Yuma Art Center’s Facebook page; and a youth and teacher art exhibit on display in the Art Center galleries April 13 through May 28.
“We are honored to keep this longstanding community event thriving through times of uncertainty,” said Arts and Culture Program Manager Lindsay Benacka. “This school year has undoubtedly been challenging for area art teachers and students alike, but artists of all ages have been busy thinking outside the box and processing the past year’s events through creative outlets.”
Blood Donors Save Arizona Kids Like Avari,
Who Received Her 100th Transfusion in 2021
While all donors of all blood types are in demand, there’s a critical need for type O
– the universal blood. Since the beginning of the pandemic, hundreds of blood drives have cancelled due to school and business closures, resulting in more than 25,000 uncollected blood donations.
Blood donors save the lives of Arizona patients like 10-year-old Avari (photo @ right) who received her 100th blood transfusion in January. She was born with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a rare disease that prevents her body from producing red blood cells. She relies on the kindness of strangers to provide lifesaving blood transfusions every three weeks, a need that is expected to continue for her entire life.
“Avari lives on borrowed blood,” says her mom, Anya. “Without regular blood donors, my daughter might not be here.”
People who have received a COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to give blood, provided general eligibility requirements are met.
All blood donations are tested for COVID-19 antibodies. For your blood donation appointment, visit www.vitalant.org (enter city or zip code) or call 1-877-25-VITAL

The American Cancer Society (ACS) Relay For Life of Yuma County, AZ invites the community to rally together as part of the April 17, 2021 at the Drive-Thru Luminaria Event at Desert Sun Stadium/Civic Center to help save lives from cancer. Due to the pandemic, Relay For Life events might look different but the passion and commitment to fight cancer is unchanged.
For more than 35 years, participants and volunteers across the world have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society conduct breakthrough research, provide 24/7 support for cancer patients and access to lifesaving screenings.
“Fundraising through Relay For Life is more important than ever and we can’t allow progress to be put on hold because of the pandemic this past year. Cancer won’t stop, and neither can we,” says Melissa Norred of ACS.
There are many ways to get involved.
