TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - An annual event for a good cause was held Saturday morning.

It's the Growing Up in the Hood event, which raises money for the Ryves Community Optimists Club.

The fundraiser helps to prove school age children in the Ryves neighborhood with things they need, like school supplies, coats, socks, and more.

Although the event has ended, donations can still be accepted.

Donations can be sent to the PayPal account via ryvesoptimists@att.net as well.
