Two Yakima area Little Leagues will be collecting non-perishable foods at their openers this weekend to benefit Northwest Harvest and area food banks.

Sherri Bissell, Northwest Harvest Yakima Engagement Specialist says:

Valley Little League and Yakima National Little League teams, coaches and families have been collecting non-perishable food items. Both Leagues have their Opening Day Ceremonies this Saturday, April 12 and they will bring all the food they have been collecting. It will be so rewarding to see these Yakima youth loading up food in our truck to help out those that are hungry in their very own community… especially while many of those that are hungry are children the same age as they are. 1 in 4 children in our community don’t get enough to eat, so these are kids helping kids!

The West Valley Little League fields are located by Cottonwood Elementary, 1041 S. 96th Avenue. Opening Day festivities start at 10 a.m. The Yakima National Little League fields are located at Elks Memorial Park, 911 Hathaway St. off N. 16th Avenue. They will be having an Opening Day breakfast starting at 8:30am and their ceremonies will also start at 10 a.m.
