Food Pantry

Hello Owyhee Community,

As many know, we strive to provide as much resources as possible to our Owyhee Community. With the increase of needs we are planning on building a outdoor food pantry and need your help!

We are asking for those who can, please donate to our Foundation account. We are putting the money towards the food and material for us to build the pantry.

The link below, is for those who are interested in donating!

Thank you for helping make a difference in our Community.

20-21 Operation School Bell Information

If you are interested in participating in Operation School Bell, we are now submitting orders. Operation School Bell is a project of the Assistance League of Boise. They assist families by providing new clothing and shoes to elementary school students without cost to families. They will make every effort to select clothing that fits your child based on the measurements and sizes you provide below and what they have available. ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS AND SIZES ARE CRITICAL, as returns and exchanges are NOT ALLOWED due to Covid-19.

Please fill out the form below for EACH CHILD at Owyhee Elementary you wish to participate. Contact your school counselor, Mr. Diemart, charles.diemart@boiseschools.org if you have any questions. All information is confidential. Sewing measuring tapes are pretty inexpensive at Walmart/Fred Meyer, etc. If you cannot afford one, I may have one that I can send you (email me to let me know), but you'll have to wait for me to get my delivery and then send them to you. If you can borrow one from a friend or family member who sews, that may be the fastest way to get the information needed.

Many families who have expressed interest in participating may have already received an email regarding this but we still have several spots open for those who would like to participate! Please fill out the link below.
