    Thanks to RadioINK for sharing this story.

    Background: The restaurant industry is being decimated by this virus. If a restaurant is unable to cover its bills by providing takeout only, it will have to close its doors. Hubbard West Palm Beach morning show co-hosts Tim & Chelsea heard from one of those restaurants earlier this week. Amanda is the daughter of the owner of Morgan’s Country Kitchen. Amanda called Tim & Chelsea on the air asking them if it was ok to let listeners know they were still open for business. She was worried her mom would lose the restaurant. One day later Amanda’s mom Patty called in to let the hosts know what happened.

     Later the same day...I received this in the Pullman Chamber of Commerce's afternoon email:


    A message from Pullman Child Welfare:
    As we observed our relatively empty shelves at the Pullman Child Welfare food bank, we contacted KQQQ and they readily agreed to run a news piece to raise awareness of the need for donations. The response was overwhelming!
    Thank you Pullman for the 300 pounds of food and monetary donations, including, but not limited to, the faculty and staff from the WSU Animal Science Department and the employees at SEL.  
    We will continue to accept donations every Wednesday from 4-7p at the Food Bank, 108 NW Stadium Way, or you can mail monetary donations to:
    Pullman Child Welfare
    P.O. Box 521
    Pullman, WA 99163.
    Please visit our webpage at
    Again, thank you so much for your kindness. We are so fortunate to live in such a
    caring community! 


    The Chamber also posted a fun graphic to promote local commerce with a game they dubbed Social Distancing Bingo. Here it is:
