SELAH, WA.- It's getting to that time of year when many of us search through our pantry for canned goods to donate to local charities, but this fall season there's more than one way you can help out.

The 2nd annual Carve Out Hunger event is going on Saturday night at the Selah Civic Center. The event, hosted by Northwest Harvest, brings together local breweries and restaurants to raise money for those less fortunate.  

Last year they were able to raise enough money to provide 27,700 meals and they're hoping to double that number this year organizer Sherri Bissell told us, "My goal is to provide 50,000 meals. That's the goal in my head and I would love to be able to double it."

The event kicks off at the Selah Civic Center this evening at 6:30 and runs till 10 that evening. Tickets are $45 at the door and to put that in perspective just a purchase of one ticket will help them provide 200 meals.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year. Thanks to a 3.1 million dollar loan and lots of planning, a very large patch of dirt will be home to a 20,000 square foot Goodwill; half warehouse and processing, half retail. The Kennewick store will be closing, however. You can still say, out with your old couches, TV's and clothing, and *into someone else's hands, just at a different location. ...More >>
