This month Annarose Qualls set up food donation boxes at schools and businesses on the Palouse, and she created a website for people to donate toward the cause. So far, she's gathered more than two-thousand pounds of food and nearly $3,000 in donations.
"I didn't really think we were going to feed 500 families," said Qualls. "I was just kind of happy to do whatever we could. But I mean, it looks like we're going to end up feeding a lot more than 500 families. So that's really neat to see."
Qualls also organized a Thanksgiving dinner for families in need. It will be held at the 1912 Center in Moscow the night before Thanksgiving, and the meal will be served at three different times, 4:00, 5:15 and 6:30p.m. It's open to anyone in need that wants to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
There's still time to donate to Qualls' drive, just head to her website.
