(IDAHO FALLS) – The city of Idaho Falls has been working to ensure that its sister city of Tokai Japan is receiving all of the help it needs to cope with relief efforts. Last night the Idaho Wine Merchant sponsored an event with proceeds going directly to humanitarian aid in Tokai. Sister-city organizer Nancy Thorsen told Local News 8 that there will be more opportunities to donate through this month saying “it’s not over yet.” A similar fundraiser was held in Blackfoot last night as well.
