College of Idaho Makes Grant

A huge thank you to the College of Idaho’s Student  Philanthropy Council for the grant of $1,000! Students on the council choose local charities that have a positive impact on the community to receive the grants. Funds for the endowed fund were initially given by the Seagraves Family Foundation. Students on the council learn about philanthropy and helping community organizations. What a great idea!

The funds were used to purchase six knee walkers, a very popular item in our loan inventory. There was usually a waiting list to borrow one, even though we had twenty in our inventory! Patients who have had a foot/ankle injury or surgery find it difficult to keep their weight off it while using crutches, preventing the site from healing properly. We are happy to loan them a knee walker like this one to facilitate their healing.
