Wow! 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!
In addition to the Holiday Sponsorship program, the community came out in full force during our Giving Tree to fulfill the more than 2,000 tags for Child Care, Shelter and Facility items that were placed around the Christmas tree in the Boise Grove Plaza. Items requested included bedding, pillows, kitchen appliances, office products, diapers, baby items, toys, medical supplies, and more!
