You can play a part in seeing every child in foster care within Benton and Franklin counties receive a holiday gift this year. From now until Dec. 16, drop off a new gift at any Ranch & Home store, Global Credit Union or the Kennewick Costa Vida Fresh Mexican Grill. The effort is a partnership between Newstalk, these businesses, Group Health and local foster care agencies. 100 percent of donations go to local children. Look for these boxes and leave the gift inside.

Then, join us for the Christmas for Children donation day on Saturday, December 17th from 9am to 4pm at Kennewick Ranch & Home! This will be our last push for toys and food for the Tri-Cities Food bank. Bring a food donation and you'll have a chance to win a $50 gift card from Ranch & Home - courtesy of Group Health.

You can make a food donation for Tri-Cities Food Bank now at Group Health - located at 1009 N. Center Parkway, Kennewick.
