Amy Curry, President and Executive Director of Boise Angels, had the following to say when she was told her organization would be receiving a grant: “My jaw dropped to the floor. I was so excited, and I was speechless just because this could be huge for us. We’re so grateful to be involved in this.
She continued, “The money will help Boise Angels onboard more families into our program. So that means it will reach foster parents, children, and youth that are going to be aging out of the system. We are most excited about seeing this money to reach our goal. We’re out to change the way foster care is experienced, and we’re out to reach every child in the foster care community in the Treasure Valley.”
The top three vote earning charities will receive a share of the final grant pool. Voting will be conducted among the Mike Brown Group clients, agents, staff, and community partners to decide the top three recipients. Grants will be awarded the week of December 14, 2020.
