Locals Raise Money For Kids With Disabilities

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- If giving back is your thing, Saturday you had the chance to help out kids with disabilities.

Yakima's Art in the Orchard benefit at Johnson Orchards was happening to raise money for the Children's Village.

A portion of the proceeds from the artists, as well as fruit and bakery sales from the orchard, will go towards activities and treatment to kids at Children's Village with special health and mental needs

"Many of the things that we do at children's village are supported just by this community and so to see people come out and see people be so excited about donating and being a part of this event is really exciting," said event coordinator, Katie Buck.

This is the third year the Children's Village has put on the event and this year they told us, they had more vendors than before, and a bigger turnout than years past.
