YNHS is honored to establish the Jeremy Gomez Food Pantry Fund, with donations provided by Jeremy’s family and friends to offer food and basic needs for people, especially youth, experiencing homelessness in the Yakima Valley.
Jeremy was a loving and happy high school teenager. He loved football. As a member of the Wapato Wolves, he suffered a sports injury that resulted in debilitating back pain, and his prescriptions developed into addiction. He experienced periods of homelessness. Even with the love and support of his family, the disease led him to dangerous places and ultimately took his life.
Jeremy’s family see youth in Yakima who remind them of Jeremy. “Jeremy’s Food Pantry” will help provide food for our unhoused neighbors and help us engage them in services that lead to safer and healthier lives.
You can contribute to “Jeremy’s Pantry” by sending your donation to YNHS in memory of Jeremy Gomez.
