Formed to address the silent crisis of diaper need, Idaho Diaper Bank began in 2014 with a mission to provide diapers through a collaboration with other social service agencies that have direct client services. Diapers can’t be purchased with food stamps or WIC, and represent a significant portion of the monthly budget for the Idaho families struggling to provide basic necessities like food, shelter and hygiene. We have provided over 1 million diapers to babies in need and continue to provide 50,000 per month to fifty agencies including domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters, early learning programs, low income health centers, and foodbanks.
Boise Bicycle Project functions as a bicycle recycling center as well as an educational workspace in a diverse and non-threatening atmosphere. Through education and access to affordable refurbished bicycles BBP strives to build a stronger bicycling community. We believe that Boise has the potential to be the cycling capital of America and envision the Boise Bicycle Project as one of the key community leaders to help it reach that potential. By collaborating with other likeminded organizations and members in the community, we hope to strengthen lives far beyond the bicycle.
