Each holiday season since 1947, Soroptimist International of Boise has sponsored a gift-giving project that benefits Treasure Valley seniors and foster children. The Statesman published the wish list on Thanksgiving day, and generous readers have almost completed the this years wish list.
Friday is the deadline and about 66 items are still needed for children and about 54 for seniors.
A quick and easy way to help and one of the most requested items is a gift card. Seniors use them to fill prescriptions and for basic household necessities. Kids use them to buy school clothes, said Soroptimist Lena Gandiaga.
To donate a gift, visit www.soroptimistboise.org/donations to find a list of names, wishes and drop-off sites.
If you can help but don't have time to purchase and deliver gift items, the Soroptimists is more than happy to do the legwork if you send a cash donation. Send checks to SI Boise, P.O. Box 8885, Boise, ID 83707. Specify if you would like your donation used for seniors or kids. Call 639-5749 for info.
