Amid the glitter and decorations, this is a season when thoughts turn to those less fortunate.
This special section, available to subscribers of the Yakima Herald-Republic and yakimaherald.com, aims to share the stories of individuals and community groups in the Yakima Valley that are giving back, in hopes it might inspire others to do the same.
Some of these groups — such as the Union Gospel Mission and Habitat for Humanity — are well known in the community. Others, like The Campbell Farm in Wapato and the Pegasus Project near Gleed, may not be as familiar. Each of these groups provides needed support and services.
We also know that given space and time constraints, it isn’t possible to include every worthy organization in this section. We’ll look for ways to feature other groups in future editions.
All of these groups could use donations of time and money, and we’ve included contact information if you are interested in volunteering or providing a financial contribution.
Together we are stronger as a community, and each of us has a role to play in helping our neighbors.
