The season of giving draws ever closer and while we donate our turkeys and volunteer our time, there are still children who fall into the gap. Here in Idaho thousands of children are at risk of falling below or deeper into poverty this holiday season. Take a moment from your busy schedule of good cheer to contact your representatives and senators about expanding and protecting these children who are most vulnerable among us. Tell them to protect SNAP for children so that their families may yet celebrate the holidays, tell them to expand and protect the EITC and CTC so that these children may yet have a Christmas this year. Don’t let Idaho’s children go without this holiday season, help make sure they have access to the hand-ups that allow them to have the joy of Christmas just the same as your children.
