Still reflecting on the awesome work that the Wood River High School seniors did on Tuesday. Spirits were high, puppy kisses were received and our community is looking that much better 👌🏼 📷: Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley

Senior ConnectionWhat a joy and great amount of help the high school students were for the Senior Connection! We can't thank you enough for all you did, making our grounds look pretty and ready for regrowth. AND our seniors were SO pleased to meet you. Come back in a month to see what all your work amounted to once our flowers, grass, and trees are in full bloom.

The Community School senior class began their plant starts for The Hunger Coalition in the Community School greenhouse. From kale to green onions, these healthy vegetables are being made more accessible to families in need. Thanks CS Seniors!

These layered soups made by the Community School 5th graders, when costs are broken down, are less than most fast food meals. Each jar is packed with plant based proteins and nutrients and average about $1.50 per jar. The jars along with the recipe were donated by The Hunger Coalition. ... See MoreSee Less

Morley Golden, our founder, has practiced generosity for years within the Wood River Valley. He has recently sat on the Board of Directors for both the St. Lukes Wood River Foundation and The Community Library, two nonprofits that make an enourmous impact on our valley. We can’t think of a better example of a generous person than our very own Morley Golden. ... See MoreSee Less

During Hemingway STEAM School’s STEAM night, the second graders presented their Wow project to the families and community. They partnered with ERC Sun Valley to educate the community about noxious weed identification and safe removal practices. Great job Huskeys! We can’t wait to take what we’ve learned from you and apply it to our daily lives! @ Ernest Hemingway Elementary

“At the end of the 8th grade they will have experienced 8 to 9 different non-profit missions.” It’s always rewarding to give back to the community, but what’s really special about Wow is the takeaway after students experience an act of generosity. We can all learn a lot from their refreshing outlook! ... See MoreSee Less

Community School seniors began their vegetable starts at the Community School Greenhouse. These starts will be given to The Hunger Coalition to then give out to their food bank. Sometimes healthy eating can be difficult for families in need, so it’s awesome that these homegrown vegetables are being made accessible. Nice work seniors! We can’t wait to see the progress. ...

The Community School 5th graders teamed up with Nurture to create layered soup jars for The Hunger Coalition. These nutrient rich meals cost approximately $1.50, proving that families on food-stamp budgets can easily eat healthy. All you have to do is add hot water! We can’t wait to distribute these to the families! ... See MoreSee Less
