Snake River Pediatrics Gives Back to the Community

Snake River Staff and their donations.  Snake River Pediatrics recognizes the TREMENDOUS impact that Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery has on our local young kids, and we are proud to support its efforts to keep children safe and strengthen at-risk families.

We proudly donated $5,000 toward the Nursery’s building project, and love participating in the Relief Run Color Blast each spring. In the fall, we donate a gift basket for a silent auction item at the Nursery’s Baby Quilt Show, and this past Christmas, our staff and patients got involved by donating cash or items needed in the therapeutic classrooms via an Angel Tree.

We are proud of our own Dr. Matt (Berria) for serving on the TVCRN Board of Directors as well! We encourage community members to join us in supporting the programs at TVCRN. When we provide our youngest citizens a strong foundation, we set up our community for success in the future!

Bethany Presbyterian Church Gives Back to the Community

In 2013, Bethany Presbyterian Church became one of TVCRN’s silent partners, with its congregation deciding to give a small gift as part of a larger outreach it was supporting. Over the years, the annual gift grew with TVCRN having been chosen as the Advent Mission Project at Bethany Presbyterian in December 2017.

“Our congregation decided to pray for children and families, and for the Nursery, throughout Advent, with an intentional prayer said each day,” explained Kathryn Baker, a member of the church.

“And, while our mission team voted to give $500 to the Nursery, an additional $385 was raised in cash donations throughout December,” said Joey Mills, another active member of the church.

The collected items, which included 30 containers of sanitizing wipes and 10 packages of diapers among dozens of other items, totaled nearly $500. “We believe in the work the Nursery is doing, and our church happily took on this project,” Mills said. “We like being part of the Nursery.”


Bob & Linda Quinn Give Back to the Community

edited_IMG_2873_300_frameWe love our family and we love this community. We have a large, blended, extended family that now includes great-grandchildren, and we can’t imagine not being there for one another. So, to think about a struggling family – especially one with infants or toddlers – not having a strong support system, is one of the key reasons we support the work of our local Relief Nursery.

As business owners, we appreciate the costs associated with operations from the power bill to payroll taxes, and we understand how difficult it can be to create a budget. For this reason, we’ve chosen to make a monthly donation to TVCRN, as well as give occasional gifts of cleaning supplies or children’s clothing.

We have been blessed and feel fortunate we are able to support a nonprofit with such an important mission. Any incident of child abuse is one too many, and we want to help prevent it. Any child we can help prepare for kindergarten is a child worthy of our investment.

Dennis and Sherri Hironaka Give Back to the Community

3aWe have been very fortunate. We had meaningful careers and now have the resources and good health to do many of the things we’ve wanted to do as retirees – mostly, that includes spending time with family (think: grandchildren) and friends. But it also includes the opportunity to give back to a community we love. There are certain things we especially care about in this community and when it came time to sit down and think about what we want to leave as a legacy, the Relief Nursery was among those Treasure Valley causes we want to support even after we’re gone.

We regularly give to TVCRN, whether it’s bringing a case of paper towels to their Stuff the Bus event, or donating during their year-end campaign. We believe that this organization is truly helping others, and we were in public education long enough to know that many, many families need help and if they’d only received it sooner, maybe their children could have avoided some of their struggles in school.

We don’t plan on going anywhere soon, but we love the thought of helping struggling families – even after we’re gone.
