PULLMAN, Wash. — Inspired by WSU Football head coach Nick Rolovich, university faculty and staff are working with the Community Action Center’s ‘Serve It Forward’ campaign.

The campaign purchases gift cards for meals at local restaurants, which are then given to families struggling financially in the COVID-19 pandemic. The Community Action Center’s goal is to provide resources to 80 households in Whitman County, and to support local businesses while they are at it.

For the families that get these cards, one-person households will receive one gift card, two- to four-person households will get two cards and three- or more-person households will get three cards.

So far, participating restaurants include:

  • Black Cypress
  • Birch and Barley
  • O-Ramen
  • South Fork Public House
  • Paradise Creek Brewery
  • Heros n Sports
