The Daily Courier reports that people who visit the center are being asked to take items for donation to other charities.

McCormack says the United Way is working on a plan to distribute donated nearly $500,000 collected for the Yarnell relief fund.

The Yarnell Hill Fire destroyed more than 100 homes in the Yarnell area, and 19 firefighters perished when the fire overtook their position.
