RICHLAND, Wash.-- -

A 10 year-old Raise Your Tent participant donates $1,000 to charity. A usually popular event is seeing a smaller turnout this year because of the weather, but donations were still very big.

The annual Raise Your Tent event in Richland brings in donations and raises awareness for the homeless. Even though not as many people participated in the camp-out, a lot of money was still brought in through donations and dozens of bags filled with clothes.

One donation brought in by 10 year-old Devin Fisher gave over $1,000 to help the hungry. The boy raised the money by himself and decided to donate it to charity. Director Ben Cook says "People want to come and you say well here's some money just like little Devin." Their goal is to raise more than $17,000.
