CHARLESTON -- A movie inspired one woman to give back to her community. A year-and-a-half ago, Dawn Thomson saw a movie called, "The Touch." As soon as it was over, she began drawing out plans for a community center.

Standing Stone has been open about six weeks. It helps bring food, clothes and furniture to those in need. There's currently a soup stop open Monday - Friday. The goal is to have food available on Saturdays too.

To help, WCIA-3 News is having a donation drive Friday while we broadcast live for our evening newscasts on the square at 6th and Monroe. You can drop off non-perishable food items and toiletries like soap and laundry detergent.
