S.A.H.A.R.A was founded by Rick Hackney & Jredia Newton, long-term residents in the Cochise county community since the early 1980s. They have the heart and passion to serve their community & members within, and have been seen doing the same across many other cities and states during desperate times of need.
The purposes for which this non profit is organized are: Distributing humanitarian aid & supplies to individuals in need at no charge – from first responders & firefighters to the citizens within the community that find themselves in a position of needing a hand up.
And to ally with other humanitarian agency’s to do the best job we can to help ALL those in need.
It is through YOUR donations that make it possible to complete the mission each time the call comes in, or there is a knock on the door.
