More than 2,500 kids in need living near the Boise, Idaho, area will have a warm jacket to keep them warm this winter.
Intermountain Gas Company once again partnered with local businesses for the Keep Kids Warm program. This year’s efforts resulted in 2,570 coats that were collected and distributed to kids in need throughout the Treasure Valley region.
People also could donate money to the Keep Kids Warm fund, which assists with heating costs for low-income families with children.
