Idaho Gives is this Thursday! If you haven't heard, we're doing things a little differently this year. Rather than asking folks to donate to BBP on that day, we're going to be highlighting the work of 12 non-profit partners who are working hard every day - often with little or no recognition - to make Boise a better place to live.
Metro Meals on Wheels of the Treasure Valley is one of those organizations! To highlight their work and help tell their story, we'll be delivering meals by bike this Thursday! If you have time from 11am to 1pm, we'd love to have your help! Sign up via this link!
Here's the program: We'll meet at the Boise Senior Center on Robbins Rd. at 11am to pick up meals and select a route. Most of the routes are in the central Boise area and require 4-6 miles of easy pedaling. Some longer options may be available for those who want to ride farther. We'll ride in teams of two with one volunteer towing a trailer loaded with meals. Bring a trailer if you have one but we'll also have some to borrow. We'll deliver nutritious meals and blow some seniors' minds when we roll up on bicycles!
I hope you'll be able to join us for this super-rewarding volunteer experience! Meals on Wheels is the lifeline that allows many of these seniors to live independently and stay in their own homes but they don't always get the recognition they deserve for all that hard work. Let's help make a splash and tell their story this Thursday for Idaho Gives! Sign up here! Can't make it? Help us spread the word and share this post! Thanks so much for your support!
