Baskets of appreciation
The healthcare workers deserve our thanks!
Will you donate a basket of treats for the healthcare workers who are working so hard to service those suffering from Covid-19?
In an effort to honor health care workers in the Treasure Valley, the Protect Idaho Kids Foundation will deliver several “baskets of gratitude” to local hospitals on Dec. 14th. We will be collecting baskets for the event, on Dec. 12-13 at the Boise Depot, South Capitol Boulevard and Rose Hill Street, Those wishing to contribute a basket with treats can drive by from 2-6 p.m. We are asking people to fill the baskets with crackers, candy, fruits and other treats, along with cards and messages of gratitude. Our volunteers will deliver the baskets and the thank you messages and cards to St. Luke’s, Saint Alphonsus, and the Veteran’s Hospital along with a large thank you card that will include messages provided by the Mayor and the Governor.
More than delivering food, the main purpose of the project will be to deliver a message of appreciation to the doctors, nurses and staff thanking them for their remarkable service.
Those wishing to contribute financially, can donate at the event’s GoFundMe page: https://gf.me/u/za44bd.
