Community steps up for Pullman Kiwanis donation match to school food pantries

April 13, 2020

Kids still need food while they stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Kiwanis Club of Pullman put out a call for donations to the Pullman Schools Pantry Program (PSPP) and the community stepped up to help feed kids in need. On April 2, the Pullman Kiwanis originally said it would match up to $2,500. By April 10, individuals donated $3,745. The club matched the donations, and gave $7,500 to the PSPP. 

The Pullman Schools Pantry Program is a supplemental food program to support the health of Pullman School District families in need. They continue to serve students in the Pullman School District during the school closures to contain the spread of COVID-19. The PSPP provides weekend supplemental food bags for students enrolled in the pantry program.
