Be among Idaho’s generous Thursday

Trailing of the Sheep Festival is one of the nonprofits on hand to accept donations and inform the public about the service during the new Idaho Gives campaign. From noon–2 p.m. local sheep celebrity, Dolly will be on hand for free photo opportunities. Bring your kids and join the fun. In an effort to spotlight the important work that nonprofits do for the state of Idaho, the Idaho Nonprofit Center has announced May 2 for statewide charitable giving. Thirty-five Wood River Valley nonprofits are collaborating on Idaho Gives and encouraging all those who have not given to a cause dear to their heart to give on this day. Idaho Gives is modeled after other successful philanthropic giving days in states and cities around the country. “It’s a way for our community to inspire those who have never given a philanthropic gift and an opportunity for loyal donors to consider making an additional gift beyond their annual contribution,” said Marcia Liebich, president of the Wood River Women’s Charitable Foundation. “By focusing on one day this year, we hope you will take five minutes to support one of the collaborating nonprofits that help make this such a great place to live and visit.” Activities and opportunities to donate will be held at Ketchum Town Square and the Visitor Center throughout the day.
