PASCO, WA- Hundreds of people came out to find all sorts of services and resources to help them in just about all aspects of life at the 4th annual International Women's Day Celebration.

It was Pathways to Literacy's 4th annual International Women's Day Celebration at Captain Gray Learning Center in Pasco.  It was not just for women.  The event was open to the entire family.

Nearly 30 local non-profit organizations handed out information on education, health, parenting, and even job services.  The Consulate of Mexico in Seattle was even providing information as well.

The Goodwill was one of the organizations there.

"I think that when everyone comes together, it shows that we're interested in providing a holistic service to individuals.  We don't want to just help them in one area in their lives but all areas of their lives," said Teona Golding, Senior Director of Mission Services for Goodwill.

The event was free of charge.  There was dancing, raffles, and even a kids section for the little ones to stay busy while their parents got information from different resources.
