Baskets of Gratitude - Thanks to healthcare

Baskets of Gratitude

A program designed to thank healthcare workers
Again this year we are asking you to lease donate to honor the healthcare workers who are working exhaustedly and putting their lives on the line to give medical care to those suffering from Covid-19.  Once again Protect Idaho Kids Foundation (PIK) will sponsor the Baskets of Appreciation program.  On Sunday, December 12, and Monday December 13, 2012 from 2pm – 6pm each day, the public can participate by dropping off baskets of gratitude at a drive-by at the Boise Depot.
People are asked to fill baskets with crackers, candy, fruits and other treats, and cards or messages of thanks to the healthcare workers.  For acceptable food items and other information on the project visit our website
On Monday, December 14th, 2021, Protect Idaho Kids volunteers will deliver the baskets to St. Luke’s, St. Alphonsus, The Veterans hospital, and the Elks hospital along with a large thank you card that will include messages provided by 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 all those who are doing such a remarkable job serving others.  The healthcare workers be able to enjoy the treats over the holidays at the hospitals or take them home to share with their families. 
More than delivering food, the main purpose of the project will be to deliver a message of appreciation to the doctors, nurses, and staff thanking them for their remarkable service.  
We will be adhering to all state and local Covid-19 and. the program has been approved by Idaho Central District Health.
The drive-by location is located at the Boise Depot located at South Capitol and Rose Hill Drive.

Your GoFundMe donation will buy food items to be delivered to these healthcare heroes, please help.
