A huge thank you to the 25 volunteers from College of Western Idaho who stepped up in a big way to help out at our Boise Food Pantry! Not only did these volunteers cruise through critical maintenance tasks, but when we were severely volunteer understaffed to assist clients later that day the students continued to contribute. Thank you CWI for saving the day!
