About Us

Palouse Cares is a Non-Profit Charity that started out as a vision of a few people and has turned into a multi-community supported, sponsored, and organized event. The goal of Palouse Cares is to ensure that children on the Palouse are fed, educated, cared for, and supported. We strive to meet these specific goals every year and constantly remind ourselves of the smiling faces that receive the benefit of our community’s good will. We hope you will participate with Palouse Cares this year. Whether monetarily, with donations, with your time, or all three! Besides our love, our labor is often the most valuable thing we have to share.

In 2015, we raised 40,000 pounds of food and $34,000 to distribute among 15 food banks and numerous non-profit organizations on the Palouse.


Planning is now underway for our 11th Anniversary of Palouse Cares which includes Door-to-Door Food Drives & Public Auctions, we are looking for volunteers. Click to sign-up to volunteer—or simply just show up!
