Help Broadview University Keep Boise Kids Warm This Winter

Published on September 25, 2013 by Tiffany Coleman

(MERIDIAN) Clean out your closet; help someone in need. That’s the goal at Broadview University. The Boise campus and its Health Sciences Student Group are doing their part to help neighbors in need stay warm during the upcoming winter months. The campus is encouraging people to go through their closets, dig out their old cold weather gear and help build up the collection in the barrel.

There are two collection barrels in the campus commons area—one at each entrance door. The collection period runs through Thursday, Oct. 31.

Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, hoodies—anything that will keep someone warm—are in the process of being collected. All items that are collected will be donated to local help organizations. Coats donated for kids will be given to the Idaho Youth Ranch’s Coats for Kids program. All adult items will be given to a local homeless shelter.

In addition to the two collection barrels, there will also be a large donation collection bin located in the campus’s parking lot. The campus has teamed up with the Idaho Youth Ranch (IYR) as a drop-off site to make it easier for people to donate to the organization’s network of thrift stores.

Broadview University is teaming up with the Idaho Youth Ranch as a drop-off site to make it easier for people to donate to the organization’s network of thrift stores.

Proceeds from IYR’s thrift stores are used to provide programs and services for Idaho’s at-risk and disadvantaged youth. The nonprofit organization offers emergency shelter, residential care, substance abuse treatment, job readiness training, alternative education, adoption services, family counseling, and more for Idaho kids and their families, regardless of their ability to pay for services.

Idaho Youth Ranch programs and services rely on donations of resalable household items, goods and clothing to keep its stores stocked. All donations stay here in Idaho helping the kids and families who need it most.
