Red Feather Society

Honoring Dedicated, Community-Building Volunteers


The United Way believes that people need to work together to enrich life and improve opportunities for our children, families and neighborhoods.

Red Feather Society supports the key role that volunteers exemplify as productive and active participants in their communities.

Through the efforts of the many individuals and organizations listed at right, we have built a stronger and more compassionate community that looks beyond our own boundaries for the benefit of all.

United Way of Pullman here honors those volunteers who have given of their time and efforts to demonstrate that lives on the Palouse change for the better when communities care. That's what it means to Live United.

A deep and heartfelt thank you to each of the Red Feather recipients over the past half century. You've made a difference.

Thank you for your support of the Pullman community and our area!
