The success of Together Treasure Valley depends on input from the community. You’ve spoken and we’ve listened – and acted on some of your ideas. With hundreds of ideas and suggestions submitted from people like you through this website we are excited to share with you that we have committed $683,000 to projects in the Treasure Valley to date.
In 2016, our team of community minded companies vowed to find and fund projects that would have a lasting and meaningful impact in our valley. In our first year, we made six library grants benefiting readers of all ages at Boise, Caldwell, Eagle, Garden City, Meridian and Nampa Public Libraries. We also invested in two major public artwork projects spanning the Valley from the Vista corridor in Boise to Caldwell’s Indian Creek Park, and provided 50 “Together” benches that we placed throughout the valley to promote community conversations.
Since then, our partners have continued to select more projects to fund that benefit those who call the Treasure Valley home. To help some of our littlest citizens prepare for a bright educational future, we invested in foundational literacy tools. We have funded a variety of community projects, including updates for some local library patrons to investing in a community interactive art sculpture and contributed to some programs that educate and enrich the lives of children and their teachers. We provided the capital needed to house a public service focused on ending homelessness and donated funds to create a playground on The Salvation Army’s new campus.
Most recently, we committed funds to allow Metro Community Services to purchase an additional vehicle to help meet the increasing demand for free transportation services to seniors in Canyon County. “I think Together Treasure Valley’s lasting impression will be its’ tremendous support for the community,” said John Colgrove, President, Intermountain Division of Albertsons Companies and Together Treasure Valley partner. “It is amazing to see so many local businesses working together, focused on making the Treasure Valley the best place to live and work.”
