Boise Rescue Mission Ministries Giving Tree At Blind Appeal Warehouse 2021 Holiday Season

The Holidays. This time of year it’s easy to get caught up in thinking about all of the gifts you may be getting or the fun parties that you will be having with friends and family. We often forget, however, that there are those around us in the community who are less fortunate. It is our pleasure to announce that we are once again teaming up with the Boise Rescue Mission Ministries in their ongoing endeavor to help out those less fortunate in our area. Here’s what we are doing and how you can help.

 

What Is The Boise Rescue Mission Ministries?

The Rescue Mission was founded all the way back in 1958 by Christ’s Gospel Mission. It was founded in part to help the local people of Boise in their time of need and its mission continues to this day. Some of the original founding board members were: E.S. Gingrich, Walt Wilson, Bob Freeman, Sam Parvin, James Law, Howard Waterman, Leo Hudlet, Aaron Olson, Mike Watson, Frank Ericson, and Chuck Bradshaw.

 

What Is Blind Appeal Doing To Help?

This year, we are proud to announce that we have set up a Giving Tree donation center in our warehouse. A Giving Tree is a tree decorated with ornaments that have various needed items on them that businesses can set up in their offices to help facilitate donations from employees. The employees will then take an ornament or two and purchase the item and return it to the tree during the drive. Once the drive time window is closed, then the gifts are gathered from the business and donated to those in need at the Rescue Mission. Currently, we have 55 presents and counting under our giving tree. Contact us to learn more or if you want to participate. It’s good fun for the whole family. 

 

Want To Help The Boise Rescue Mission Ministries In A Different Way?

Helping to support the Rescue Mission doesn’t have to involve you even leaving your house. Sometimes it is easier and more impactful to donate discretely and from the palm of your hand as opposed to in person. You can donate online in several different ways. Here are a few. 

 

-Purchase items from their Amazon wish list that will be mailed directly to their facilities.

-Purchase items from their Walmart wish list either online or print the list and take it with you on your next shopping trip this holiday season.

-Contribute money directly online using this handy digital donation form.

 

If you’d rather donate your time and services rather than money or items, then that works too. They are always looking for fresh volunteers all year round. This is a great way to build lasting memories with friends and family and to directly give back to those in need. Learn more about volunteering here.
