Help Make The Treasure Valley a Safer and Better Place to Live!
I have been a trial lawyer in the Treasure Valley for over the past 33 years. The primary goal and objective I have as a trial lawyer in representing victims of injury is to help them obtain compensation for the injuries and damages they have occurred due in large part to no fault of their own. Another goal and objective I have as a trial lawyer who resides in the Treasure Valley is to help make our community a better and safer place to live for our children and grandchildren.
Along the way, I met Kevin Miller of KIDO 580 Radio. Kevin has been involved over the years with a similar goal and objective in helping out various entities and individuals in the Treasure Valley particularly those organizations dedicated to helping others find better employment, better schooling and battling homelessness and addressing the multifaceted causes that result in people losing jobs and losing their homes including, but not limited to, drug and alcohol addiction and/or mental illness.
I have found that at the end of the year a number of families face great difficulty in dealing with the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) for lack of funds. But there are a number of entities that are focused on helping individuals and their families dealing with homelessness and/or poverty in helping elevate these folks to a better standard of living to return them to being productive members of our community and off the streets.
I was impressed with Kevin Miller’s efforts in helping the Boise Rescue Mission, and how they were helping a number of families and individuals get off the street and obtaining successful treatment for both drug and alcohol addiction and/or mental illness. I met a number of individuals who used to be homeless but are now in or have completed programs which allowed them to return to school at in Nampa and help pave the way for them to return to the job market becoming taxpayers and productive members of the community.
To that end, I have been dedicated in helping Kevin Miller and the Boise Rescue Mission in their goal in gathering turkeys, sundries and cash for this time of year to help feed the poor with the ultimate goal of helping inspire these people to addressing the cause of their homelessness and/or destitute situations to help them overcome the cause of their problems which ultimately help us in our goals and objectives of making our communities a safer and better place to live for one and all.
This week Kevin Miller will be living in a RV at the parking lot located at Walmart Garrity Nampa location with the objective to solicit the donations of 1,000 turkeys and other holiday food items to serve our homeless guests and hungry neighbors. The Boise Rescue Mission this holiday season anticipates in serving over 2,000 meals and providing over 1,500 boxes of holiday food (including a turkey) to our neighbors this Thanksgiving. At Christmas, they are planning to serve over 1,800 meals and provide around 1,500 boxes of holiday food. In addition, they will hand out toys to over 2,500 children.
I ask for your help in this endeavor in that I ask for your help to help me help you. I believe that all of us are interested in making our community a better and safer place to live. This helps our community address crime in our community as well as helping those who have lost their way find a means of being able to deal with their problems to return to productivity.
Thanks to our generous community, we are able to provide these services to those in need in our community. We hope they will be encouraged by the special meals, and we hope it opens doors for them to come to our facilities to seek help in transitioning them from the status of homelessness to one of independence.
So, I ask you to help me help you in this endeavor. Buy some turkeys and bring them to the Walmart Garrity Nampa location or give me a call and we can arrange to have the goods picked up if you are unable to bring them to Kevin’s location. You can reach me at 208.344.5555 or call me toll free at 888.716.8021 or send me an email at [email protected] I would be happy to help you become apart of this great tradition of helping others and to receive the blessings associated with gift giving to those who need it most at this time of year. Your gift to the Boise Rescue Mission is a tax deductible contribution.
My father used to tell me that if you give a fish to a hungry man, you feed him a meal. If you help teach the hungry man how to fish, you help feed him for a life time. The Boise Rescue Mission’s goal is to help with both tasks. By helping them feed the poor, we help them with their mission of helping these folks who are homeless or underemployed to begin applying for resources to help them obtain better employment and educational opportunities in the valley to help make them productive and indepenent once again.
Happy Holidays to yours and you!
