KENNEWICK, Wash. - With the virus outbreak hitting our area hard, three local organizations are coming together to ask for the community's help with supplying critical medical supplies.

Tri-City Development Council (TRIDEC), Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visit Tri-Cities, have come together to operate a drop off location where people can donate the critical medical supplies. All of the local healthcare providers have a critical shortage of these items and global supply chains have ceased to exist. The members of the Tri-Cities Business and Visitor Center have organized a donation site where community members can donate their medical supplies.
