Benton-Franklin Counties has raised thousands for Haiti

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Benton-Franklin Chapter of the American Red Cross has collected and donated $24,593. This includes $2,315 raised at last night's Tri-City American's game.

In addition, several hundred thousand people have chosen to make an automatic $10 donation by texting "Haiti" to 90999 on their cell phone. A $10 donation made through mobile giving can provide a family with two water cans to store clean drinking water, a blanket appropriate to the climate or other supplies to give people the ability to cook for their families.

Faith Assembly church in Pasco also raised money. They raised $15,000 for a non-profit organization called Convoy of Hope.
