RICHLAND, Wash.--Richland church donates large check to food bank.

Members of the All Saints Episcopal Church in Richland gave the Tri-Cities Food Bank a check for $13,344.

Money was raised as part of a group effort to bring awareness to starving people all around the world. Some of the members felt it was better to start off by feeding people closer to home.

Jane Schmoetzer of All Saints Episcopal Church says "even our students were involved in this. I.7% of it is your babysitting money."

The total amount of money raised by the church was $26,688. The other half of the money will be sent to Honduras at an orphanage in El Hogar that supports more than 200 orphans.
