The phone banks closed Dec. 1 for the Soroptimist International of Boise’s Holiday Gift Project, but the need for gifts for local seniors and foster kids still exists.

The annual campaign benefits mainly seniors living in nursing homes and care centers as well as children in the foster care system throughout the Treasure Valley.

The Idaho Statesman published the full wish lists on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26.

Currently, about 40 children and 70 seniors have not received anything on their lists.

To fulfill a holiday wish, visit the Soroptimist International of Boise’s webcart at soroptimistboise.org/giftnew or to the group’s Facebook page (search for Soroptimist Int’l of Boise) and click the “donate now” button. You can purchase a specific gift or offer a cash donation, and someone will do the shopping for you.

If you need assistance, you can send an email to SIBoise@soroptimist.net, or call 639-5749 for a recorded message about drop-off locations. Gift drop-off information is also available on the Soroptimist website.
