YUMA, Ariz. – A current string of robberies at the Gotta Dream Treasure thrift store is keeping them from helping kids in the community.
The issue is at the drop-off section where the boxes left for donation are being ransacked for valuables.
Store Manager, Michelle Hamilton, encourages dropping off donations inside the store or to call the store ahead of time if they’re not open to get assistance.
Hamilton says she feels it’s a shame robberies keep happening because the kids are the ones who get affected.
“If there’s some good merchandise in the donations and they’re being stolen; that’s taking money away from them that we made in our store to help give them dreams,” said Hamilton.
If you’d like to donate, their store hours for the summer are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Their store is located at 2395 S. 4th Ave., Yuma, AZ 85364.
