Ten days after a massive landslide destroyed homes on Whidbey Island, the community is coming together to help neighbors in need.

A benefit with music and food was held at Greenbank Farm on Saturday afternoon.

Gov. Jay Inslee toured the slide area.

"We're going to work with the homeowners to make sure we can do whatever's legally allowed to help them," said Inslee. "We'll have some insurance issues, there's some geological issues we're going to have to sort out."

Donations to the Whidbey Slide Relief Fund at Wells Fargo Bank can be deposited at any Wells Fargo location.
