Boise Food Drive

Did you know that Boise, Idaho is the 9th most generous city in the US (http://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/2013/most-generous-cities)?   And although there's no study on this, the Bigelow plant in Boise must have one of the most generous teams in the country.   After a suggestion from Holly Huether, 3rd shift operator at Boise, the plant organized a Holiday food drive for the Boise Rescue Mission.  732 pounds of food was donated, an average of 12 pounds per person.   

The Boise plant supported 13 charities in the Boise area in 2013, including the Rescue Mission.  In addition to financial contributions and the food drive, the plant also donated empty boxes for the Mission's use.   Two team members volunteer a great deal of time to the Mission:  Darlene Pritchard volunteers at the Women's shelter and Tony Greer serves on the Board of Directors
