The month of November is a time for grateful reflection, ushering in the holidays and the season of giving. It has been said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Irrespective of whether giving includes some of your time or your resources, collectively we can make a great impact within our community.

Here are a few organizations for your consideration to give back:

They also operate a network of thrift stores that help fund their youth programs and services.


Boise Rescue MissionBoise Rescue Mission - Boise Rescue Mission Ministries invites you to partner with them to serve our homeless and hungry neighbors. They are the men, women, and children across the Treasure Valley. Are you are looking to fill a specific need at the Mission? Are you simply interested in where to donate to a non-profit in the Boise and Nampa area? They welcome donations of all kinds.


Salvation ArmyThe Salvation Army - Wherever there is a need in Ada County you'll find The Salvation Army. Salvation Army Programs are led by Salvation Army Officers. These officers are responsible to lead by assessing needs, delivering programs and directing ministries for our local community.

The Festival has raised more than $10 million dollars to improve healthcare in our community. The 2019 Festival of Trees will take place November 27 – December 1 with the Gala on November 26 and the Fashion Show on December 2.
