World Care forced out of building due to water damage

TUCSON - A local non-profit dedicated toward collecting supplies and providing aid in response to national and international disasters is being forced to close its services effective November 1st.

World Care is being forced to relocate its operations due to water pipe damage and erosion at its current facility near Silverlake Road and Alvernon Way, which is 63 years old. It has experienced seven water main breaks in the last year, the most recent of which occurred just three weeks ago.

The organization is now asking for the public's help in supporting a new site and assist in this emergency transition.

For the next two weeks World Care will hold a yard sale to raise money to support the emergency it faces.

According to a news release, World Car has provided more than $55 million in humanitarian aid within the community as well as in response to disasters across the globe.

If you would like to donate, you can go to Worldcare.org
