Yakima Food Drive Helps Veterans During the Holidays

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- A food drive in Yakima is helping those who served this country.

The Yakima County Veterans Program hosted a week long food drive to try to fill a truck with food. The donations will go to help feed Veterans and their families this holiday season.

"We just have a great opportunity for folks to support our local Veterans in this food drive," Yakima County Veterans Coordinator David Brown said. "We have a pantry and Yakima County Veterans Program has a pantry and we have another pantry at the Vets Center so we're just trying to support our Veterans and their families."

The Veterans Program hopes to raise $2,500 worth of food Saturday. If you want to help out contact the Yakima County Veterans program by clicking here. Or call David Brown at (509) 574-1537.
