To start 2022 off with giving, Auction Frogs is hosting a Community Donation Drive! Our staff is working together with our community to help fill the needs of three nonprofit organizations local to us here in the Treasure Valley—ones with missions that we are passionate about.
Keep reading below for information about the great nonprofit organizations we are supporting with our inaugural Community Donation Drive, and to learn more about how you can contribute!
Boise Rescue Mission Ministries
Boise Rescue Mission Ministries offers a variety of services to meet the needs of homeless men, women, and children in Ada County, Canyon County, and surrounding counties. Each year, they serve more than 220,000 meals, provide more than 105,000 safe nights of shelter, and distribute more than 25,000 items of clothing.
Through their programs and services, they’ve helped restore dignity, a sense of purpose, and hope for thousands of our homeless and hungry neighbors in the Treasure Valley. Click here to learn more about Boise Rescue Mission.

Dress for Success Boise Valley
Dress for Success Boise Valley focuses exclusively on women who have begun to change their lives—by undergoing some form of job training or skills development—to re-enter the workforce. They work with women from domestic violence shelters, employment and development centers, incarceration programs, welfare and unemployment recipients, and other women’s programs.
While referral agencies give these women the skills they need to book an interview and perform a job, Dress for Success Boise Valley provides these women with a crucial finishing touch. They provide clothing as a symbol of their faith in every woman’s ability to succeed. Click here to learn more about Dress for Success Boise Valley.

Family Justice Center of Idaho
Domestic violence plagues our country with staggering statistics. It doesn’t discriminate—it seeps its way into all ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and socio-economic levels. No matter how small or large the community, there will inevitably be family violence hidden within the framework.
At the Family Justice Center of Idaho, they work to bring light to this issue by providing victim support, education, and life-skill training to those in our immediate and surrounding areas. They help victims of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, child abuse, elder abuse, and stalking. What makes the Family Justice Center unique is that several agencies are located in-house and all services are free. This makes it easier for victims to get the help they need.
