In celebration of Idaho Gives, St. Vincent de Paul invites Treasure Valley residents to tour the charity’s new administrative office and learn more about its work in southwest Idaho.

At the open houses, residents can meet St. Vincent de Paul’s team, which works to prevent homelessness and connect people who are homeless with programming and resources.

The two open houses will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 30 and May 3 at 5256 W. Fairview Ave. in the Fairview Square Mall.

St. Vincent de Paul’s mobile pantry will be on-site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday. Organizers will hand out pre-assembled boxes of food for anyone who needs grocery assistance. The Friday event will also feature live music and raffle giveaways and gift baskets with items from Boise-based Janjou Patisserie, as well as NBC, Lifetime Network and Discovery television channels.

Organizers ask that attendees wear face masks.
