Did you help? Yakima’s Brian Harris Raises More than $80,000
$80,000. That's how much money Brian Harris raised this month to help the YWCA women's shelter in Yakima. Harris's Daughter, 30-year-old Emily was murdered by her husband at her Selah home on January 24, 2020. Her husband later took his own life.

Thanks to a variety of donations Harris says he was able to raise a total of $80,00.
