Pack the Pantry, June 17th, 2021!

Thursday, June 17th from 4-6:30pm, the United Way of Treasure Valley's Women United group will be collecting items for our Homeless Student Basic Needs Pantry. This pantry serves roughly 60 schools throughout the valley. We hope to supply school workers who are working through the summer with basic needs items for students. These students may be experiencing food insecurity and barriers to hygiene while school is not in session. And with a little luck, the pantry will remain nice and stocked for the start of school in August.
How to participate!

Please plan to put your items in the trunk of your car and enter our parking lot on the east side of the building. We are located at 3100 S. Vista Ave. in Boise. You'll be greeted and given instructions to pull around back where we will unload your vehicle. You will exit the parking lot on the west side of our building.
