BOISE, Idaho — The 12th annual 7Cares Idaho Shares will take place this Saturday, December 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
KTVB will broadcast live at several locations throughout the Treasure and Magic valleys and accept food and cash donations to help the hungry and homeless in Idaho.
Be sure to tune in and watch the generosity of our community.
Last year’s 7Cares Idaho Shares collected enough cash and food to provide nearly 1 million meals.
Donations can be dropped off at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, and 30 Albertsons and 8 Fred Meyer stores. We will be accepting non-perishable food items and cash donations to help Idaho families in need.
Fundraising BBQ at Albertsons Stadium:
Albertsons and Agri Beef will host a hot dog fundraising BBQ at Albertsons Stadium on Saturday, December 14th from 10:30am to 1:00pm. The hot dog meal includes a Double R Ranch 100% beef hot dog, chips and a drink – all for a $5.00 cash donation to 7 Cares Idaho Shares.
Share your photos from 7Cares on social media with the hashtag #7cares.
All donations will be split between nine Idaho charities including the Idaho Foodbank, Salvation Army, and Boise Rescue Mission Ministries.
This year we will have a phone bank open during the week leading up to 7Cares Idaho Shares. The phone bank will be available Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. It will also be open on Friday during Today's Morning News, the News at Noon, the News at 4, the News at 5, and the News at 6. And on Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Call (208) 321-5888 or toll free (833) 667-7277 to donate.
