Last week on Idaho Matters, we told you how the United Way Treasure Valley and the Idaho Community Foundation are working together to get much needed financial help to people who are now experiencing housing insecurity because of the coronavirus pandemic. The fund is working with reputable nonprofits to support folks around the state. 

 

Nora Carpenter is the executive director of the United Way Treasure Valley and Karen Bilowith is with the Idaho Community Foundation. Both join Idaho Matters live to give us an update on this project.

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.

 

Idaho Matters is working on a story about how families are dealing with school closures during the coronavirus outbreak. Parents: What do your days look like now? Are you creating structure, or are you letting your kids have an extended spring break? Kids: What do you like about being at home, and what do you miss about school and being with your friends? Using your smartphone, please send us a voice memo with your family. Tell us about your daily routine, or about what your’e doing to stay distracted or learning. Send the voice memo to idahomatters@boisestate.edu. We might use your message in an upcoming show.
