Say Thanks to healthcare workers and teachers

Baskets of Gratitude
Thank healthcare workers and teachers

Please donate to honor the healthcare workers working exhaustedly and putting their lives on the line to provide medical care in these difficult times. Once again, Protect Idaho Kids Foundation (PIK) will sponsor the Baskets of Gratitude program to collect treats for healthcare workers to enjoy over the holidays. This year we have extended the program to include the teachers at Boise School District's six Community schools. They will also receive treats and our thanks.

 On Saturday, November 19, and Sunday, November 20, 2022, from 2–6 pm, the public can participate by dropping off Baskets of Gratitude at a drive-by located at the north end of the Dillard's parking lot at the Towne Square Mall.

People are asked to fill baskets with crackers, candy, fruits and other treats, and cards or messages of thanks to healthcare workers and teachers. For acceptable food items and information, visit our website,

On Monday, November 21st, 2022, Protect Idaho Kids volunteers will deliver the baskets to St. Luke’s, St. Alphonsus, the Veterans hospital, the Elks hospital, and the six Community schools. A giant thank you card will also be delivered, including messages from the Mayor and the Governor.

Various companies will also be solicited to donate items.   With enough response from the public and company donations, we can offer tasty food items to those serving others. Healthcare workers and teachers can enjoy the treats over the holidays at work or take them home to share with their families. 

More than delivering food, the project's purpose will be to provide a message of appreciation to the doctors, nurses, teachers, and staff, thanking them for their remarkable service.  

The drive-by location is at the north end of the Dillard's parking lot at the Towne Square Mall.

Your GoFundMe donation will buy food items to be delivered to our healthcare and teacher heroes. Please help.
