Rosauers in Lewiston, in partnership with Idavend Broadcasting, held the annual Holiday Heroes one-day food drive. Lewiston Rosauers shoppers purchased grocery bags stuffed with festive side dishes and pantry staples for families needing a little help to make their holiday meal special this year.
Once again, Idahoans across the state embodied the true spirit of giving during our “Hope for the Holidays” campaign; a program that generated food for millions of meals for community members facing hardships they could never imagine. More than that, Idahoans showed that they care about their neighbors and people in their communities that they may never meet. It is a gift that will keep giving well into the new year.
