In yesterday’s Giving Guide, we highlighted in-kind items like clothes and basic necessities that are needed across the Treasure Valley and beyond this year.
While when we think of donating, in-kind gifts and money come to mind. However, giving time can be just as valuable and there are non-profit organizations across the Treasure Valley who are in need of helping hands this year.
If you can, here’s are ways to give time:
- Volunteer Match – Dozens of volunteering opportunities with local non-profits are listed here
- Just Serve – Dozens of in-person and virtual volunteering opportunities with local non-profits are listed here.
- Meridian Food Bank – Sign up to volunteer to pick-up food
- Boise Rescue Mission – Sign up here for a variety of volunteering opportunities
- Allona’s Angel’s – Sign up here to wrap gifts, pick up from local drop-off Locations, or deliver gifts to assisted living and memory care facilities
- St Vincent De Paul – Help manage the food pantry drive-thru
- American Red Cross – List of various ways to volunteer virtually or in-person
Tomorrow, we will highlight the organizations asking for money in order to help those in need this holiday season.
