Warm Coat Drive


Everyone knows that winter in Idaho is cold and long. The only way to combat the cold is to bundle up in your best winter gear, an oversized jacket, a wool hat, and some warm mittens. However, many people in Gem County do not have these items and a growing need has been identified in our local schools. Caring community members and local organizations throughout town are calling on the community at large to donate gently used or new items. Valor Health has set up drop off sites at both Valor Health Clinic locations (Emmett Medical Center, 1102 E Locust Street and Specialty Medicine and Surgical Clinic, 1024 E Locust Street) and at Valor Health Hospital (1202 E Locust Street).

Valor will continue collecting items throughout February with all donations going to local families, our local schools, the Guest House, and New Leaf Thrift Store. So far this season, Valor has collected over 250 articles for donation, thanks to our amazing and selfless community! For more information, or to find a drop off location, please call Community Engagement at Valor Health, 208-901-3212.
