The Fourth of July parade is big in Idaho Falls and that's why the Interfaith Community Service Project thinks it's a great chance to get the community's help.
As families patiently line the streets of Idaho Falls, waiting for the Fourth of July parade, you may want to bring more than just the the lawn chairs.
"Food supplies, clothing, bedding, cleaning supplies, diapers for the children" said Bobby Dunn, the representative for the First Christian Church of the Interfaith Community Service Project.
The Interfaith Community Service Project is in need of your help to donate goods to local organizations.
The Ark, The Haven, St. Vincent de Paul Outlet, and the Idaho Falls Community Food Bank are in need.
The service project was first started by the Latter Day Saint Ammon West Stake, but now, 11 different Christian churches in Idaho Falls are teaming up to help the local organizations in Idaho Falls.
"The more people who are involved, the more successful it is and the more we can contribute to the agencies that we're supporting." said Dunn.
So bring your donations to the parade and look out for float 84 to drop off your items.
If you cannot attend the parade, you are invited to drop off your donations at any of the eleven churches. The listing of the churches is on the website: http://www.interfaithcommunityserviceproject.org/interfaith/ui/sponsoringOrganizations.jsf
