Christine called us to hear this holiday story from the Davis family, who were visiting the Boise Town Square Mall today and ran into a mysterious woman in the parking lot, who handed Mary Alice a Christmas card. She told Mary Alice that she looked like she deserved the gift, and when she opened the card she discovered that it contained a $100 bill. Mary Alice turned to thank the woman, but it was too late – the lady had vanished!

Rather than go back into the mall, Mary Alice and rest of the Davis family decided to pass the gift along to The Idaho Foodbank. A $100 gift will provide 400 meals for Idahoans who struggle with hunger every day. Happy Holidays to the Davis family and their mystery parking lot benefactor!
