HS and GT Article Pic 4Wow! What an incredibly giving community we have here in the Treasure Valley!

This year, with the invaluable help from so many kind individuals and corporations, we were able to sponsor 118 client families for Christmas. These families received much needed household items, clothing, coats, shoes, gift cards for groceries and gas, and toys for the little ones. For many of these clients, these items were the only Christmas they had so we are extremely grateful to everyone who brought so much joy to our clients!
