Buy supporting these programs you are investing in your fellow community members, making our community a better place to live.

Make a Difference

As of 2015, Whitman County had the highest poverty rate in Washington State. Low income residents are more likely to encounter quality of life challenges and living in areas outside of Pullman seems to compound those challenges. Donations provide low income families with opportunities and hope in their time of need. Investing in a local organization like Community Action Center insures your support is provided directly to those around you, empowering and improving living conditions in the wider Whitman County community. Help us make a positive difference in your fellow community members lives.

Community Action Center Thanks Everyone Who Supports the Community By Giving Their Time and Money

Community Action Center would especially like to thank a tremendous contributor: Palouse Cares. Amongst all that Palouse Cares does, one spectacular event that helps not only CAC but other local area non-profits is a city wide fundraiser that is held one weekend a year both in Pullman and Moscow. There are 200 volunteers, on average, that canvas the cities going door to door collecting around 10,000 – 20,000 pounds of food. $2,000 – $3,000 in monetary donations are collected through individual donations and silent and live auctions. For more information about Palouse Cares please visit

If you have a question about any donation, please call our office 509-334-9147 or 800-482-3991.  With enough notice we can usually find a home for donations of any kind.  CAC staff and clients are grateful for your continuing generosity.  We would not be able to provide the help we do– without help from you.
