Local Company Donates Over 40 Cases of Tuna

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - A local company helped out Northwest Harvest with a generous donation.

42 cases of tuna might sound like a lot, but for Heyl Truck Lines owner Bill Peterson, it's just another donation.

Peterson said they usually donate products that are defective to local organizations like Northwest Harvest.

He said the cans of tuna are just a small way for his company to help out the community.

Hile also donates to other organizations, including a homeless shelter in the area.

"It's free food for them," he said. "Lots of people can't afford it especially in this valley. There's a lot of people that are below poverty level, so we like to do whatever we can to help them out."

Peterson said his company donates other items as well.

The biggest donations so far are a load of watermelons and several pallets of bottled water.

Peterson also said he'll be delivering the cans of tuna on Thursday to Northwest Harvest.
