Donating to the Needy
Two organizations in Yakima donate thousands of pounds of food to those in need.
Grace Lutheran Church and 2nd Harvest teamed up to help distribute over nine thousand pounds of goods to hundreds of people.
The food and supplies are all donated to 2nd Harvest, which then distributes it to various organizations in the region.
Organizers say it's also an opportunity to connect with those in the community.
"That's really a special thing; to be able to give our church members, and also we have some neighbors that come over and help us, to give them the opportunity to help and to serve, that's a special thing," said Pastor James Turriff.
Pastor Turriff says the church will host the donation event at the church once a month.
