The holidays are right around the corner, and your help could brighten a child’s day.
Donations and volunteers are needed to help support an annual holiday shopping program for underserved youth in the community.
Boise Parks and Recreation will host the annual Kids’ Holiday Shopping Spree on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at Target, 6280 N. Eagle Road, Boise. The youth participants are chosen from after-school programs at refugee apartment complexes, neighborhood centers, a homeless day shelter and Title 1 schools that demonstrate significant need for this program.
Each child receives a gift card. About 150 participants are expected to take part this year.
Volunteers are needed to accompany the children in the store. To register, go to bit.ly/1MEjcZZ.
Online donations are accepted at bprwebtrac.cityofboise.org/wbwsc/webtrac.wsc/wbsplash.html.
