RICHLAND, WA - Sharehouse Coffee in Richland is always pairing up with charities, but Saturday they held their first ever block party.
The event was aimed at raising funds for their December organization of the month, Krochet Kids International. They held raffles and door prizes to raise money. Krochet international started in Spokane and it empowers women around by keeping them employed. The hats and other items that are made by the women are sold and the profits go right back to them.
"We chose Krochet Kids because of what they're doing in the lives of a lot of women," said Evan Burt, the general manager at Sharehouse. "They kind of help them if they're impoverished or if they've been through different traumas. They take them and they teach them how to make these hats."
Sharehouse picks a different non-profit every month to support and they say they are always looking for new groups to work with.
