Pasco military family gets help with their yard

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- The Helping Hands Ministry of South Hills Church of Kennewick has responded to the need of a soldier in Afghanistan.

Darren Miller is a Navy Corpsman.  He was called back to Afghanistan for the third time leaving his wife and two children behind. The family bought a  home in Pasco just prior to his departure but was unable to fence and plant grass in and around his backyard prior to leaving.

The Helping Hands Ministry of South Hills decided to finish the job realizing the children needed a safe place to play.

When Rick's Fencing of Kennewick and Irrigation Specialists of Pasco heard of the need, both stepped in to help. Rick's Fencing offered a generous discount for fencing materials. Irrigations Specialists of Pasco donated the irrigation materials at no cost. The Helping Hands Ministry paid for the discounted fencing materials.  Volunteers will install it on Saturday, which happens to coincide with Armed Forces Day.

This gesture is a salute to all members of our Armed Forces who are serving our country.
