Hope House launching back-to-school shoe drive

May 25, 2023

Boundary County Hope House is fundraising to provide new shoes to children in Boundary County as part of the Back to School Bash, a free event for kids to get all the needed supplies to start the school year off right, and asking individuals and local businesses for help in purchasing shoes.

“Last year, we purchased 149 pairs of shoes at an average cost of $28 per pair. With the current state of the economy, we anticipate the need for shoes to only increase,” said Eli Pine, co-owner of Hope House. “Every little bit counts, and any amount you can give would be greatly appreciated. Let’s work together to ensure that every child has the opportunity to start the school year on the right foot.”

The Back to School Bash is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 26, at the Boundary County Fairgrounds, including bounce houses and a barbecue.

Donations can be made by mail to: Hope House, 158 Meadow Creek Road, Bonners Ferry, ID 83805.
