Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Boise, ID

Total Budget: $1,700

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Repair delivery truck for Astegos who provides supplies to schools, churches, non-profit groups at big discounts from retail

The project is to provide funds to repair the brakes, fuel system and other needed maintenance items for the delivery truck owned by Astegos, a Boise non-profit that works to feed and house the homeless. Astegos receives overstock items of all sorts - household goods, clothing, school supplies, food, tools, electronics, etc -- from major retailers. It sorts and makes the goods available to teachers, churches and non-profit groups throughout the region at a substantial discount to retail prices. It only collects enough money from "shoppers" to cover the cost of the operation. Making the delivery truck safe and reliable will allow Astegos to deliver goods to groups who can't easily and quickly get to Boise where the warehouse is located. Estimated cost of repairs is $1700

Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)

The club volunteers with Astegos to sort goods at the warehouse and also it participates in Astegos' CasaRoll project to feed shut-ins.
