    September is National Preparedness Month and officials are giving a list of the basics that the public should always have on hand in case of an emergency. Always have water, a battery powered flashlight and a first aid kit and have them on hand before an emergency hits.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Wingspan, Southern Arizona's lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender community center,  is moving from their location on 4th Avenue and 7th Street.  Their new location will be the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation building, which is not far away at Broadway and Euclid. 

According to the nonprofit's Facebook page the group is moving due to economic hardship and that they are looking to connect with other nonprofit's. Moving to the SAAF building will allow Wingspan to be more financially stable; the lease for the building they currently occupy is up on Thursday.

The non-profit group needs a little help with this move.  They are asking for packing supplies - boxes, packing tape and labels, as well as some help packing those boxes.  Volunteers will be needed as well for unpacking and organizing once they move to the SAAF building.

The move started on Monday, but the nonprofit plans to move things the rest of this week; starting this morning at 9 a.m. and ending by 6 p.m.

Much of the gear at the current Wingspan building will not be going to the new location and organizers say will be having a yard sale on Thursday at 9 a.m.  to help pare down what needs to be moved.
