When the temperature drops and the holidays approach, Yakima's Union Gospel Mission is home to hundreds of needy people in the valley. Executive Director Rick Phillips says a busy time of year means they need lots of volunteers throughout the holiday season. Phillips says businesses can consider volunteering entire staffs to help the mission this year. Papa John's recently cooked pizzas for those at the mission while staff helped serve the food.
