Volunteers pack fruit for charity

YAKIMA, Wash. - Volunteers from across the country are spending their summer in Yakima to help those in need.

The volunteer organizations come to Yakima every year to help box fruit for Northwest Harvest.

The fruit is shipped to a number of food banks across the Yakima Valley and other parts of central and eastern Washington.

According to Northwest Harvest, the fruit is donated to by a number of orchards in the valley.
