Time to thank local nonprofits

    This November, in a statewide campaign, Idaho recognizes the significance and power of our state’s nonprofits with its celebration of Idaho Nonprofit Month. Here in our unique valley, we have much to celebrate and be thankful for when it comes to nonprofits. There are organizations aplenty that fund, foster and help many needed social service causes. And more—the arts, education, sports, the environment—all have many folks who care and work hard as volunteers to promote these causes held dear to them.
    Then we have the Wood River Women’s Charitable Foundation and the Little Black Dress organization—both pooled-giving funds that gather money from their members and select those nonprofits worthy of having their projects funded.
    But most important are all those generous donors who dip into their wallets to keep this amazing machinery of nonprofits rolling along in our valley, always making a vital difference in the quality of life for all here in the Wood River Valley.
