Red Cross Board Chairman Chris Coates honored the area resident with the 2012 Hometown Hero Good Samaritan Award during a reception at the Blue Mountain Red Cross Chapter on May 23 for his bravery and quick action.

It's growing season. And with that in mind, soon-to-be certified, nonprofit Hometown Harvest of Walla Walla is available to assist community members in donating, harvesting and cultivating local produce in their own backyards for donation to local food banks.

If you find you've grown more zucchini, corn, lettuce, carrots and other produce than your family can possibly use come harvest time, let them know. They'll pick it up and donate it for you.

They will also help harvest a garden or fruit trees in exchange to a portion of the harvest to be donated.

Everything helps, Hometown Harvest notes, and no donation is too small.

Call Lindsey Williams at 509-200-5212 with questions or donations. View their Facebook page at for gardening tips and other details.

"So far this summer we've been able to donate to The Pantry Shelf every Tuesday, thanks to some very generous donors.

"We hope to continue being able to do that, as well as increase our overall donations."
