The 17th annual "Play Day" is a place where people can learn all about Yuma. From its businesses to it's non-profit organizations, Play Day caters to everyone.
Peggy Collins with the Yuma Jaycees said, "It's an event to get some of our local businesses and non-profits out here to kinda showcase what they provide in our community." Numerous organizations informed the public about their mission. The Casa Program watches out for neglected children in juvenile courts and they were out there searching for volunteers.
"We don't have enough volunteers to assign to the casses that we have, and it's important that every child, who's in the system, that's been removed from their home that's currently in foster care has a home has an advocate to look our for their best interest," said Dennis O'rourke with the Casa Program.
Arizona Western College attended to interact with other businesses as well. Alejandra Hernandez, with the Arizona Western College said, "We really want to get more involved in the community, so we're actually meeting with other vendors, other companies, who might be hosting future events, and they might be having us come out and that we we can have more of a network with the yuma community."
The beauty of "Play Day" is that it's a one stop shop for everyone in Yuma to come together and interact.
Barbara Rochester with Crossroads Mission said, " How "Play Day" helped us was that there was differnet organizations here and like the magician over there, he says 'i'd like to come to the family shelter and help' and I had community legal services saying 'what's going on at the mission.' So it's the interation of grouping together and solving problems so we can help the families."
