Community Involvement


At CDI and CBP we have created a way for our employees to get more involved with the community. An employee chooses a recipient of our monthly donation. Here is a list of some of the recipients:

Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center – Pocatello
Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter – Pocatello
Idaho Foodbank – Boise
Idaho Foodbank – Pocatello
Idaho Humane Society – Boise
Life’s Kitchen – Boise
Malheur Council on Aging and Community Services – Ontario, Oregon
Mercy Medical Center Foundation – Meals on Wheels – Nampa
St. Luke’s Health Foundation – Teen Room – Boise
SEICAA – Meals on Wheels – Pocatello
Pocatello Neighborhood Housing Services – Pocatello
Bingham Health Care Foundation – Diabetic Education – Blackfoot

In their own words, here are some examples why the employee chose the donation recipient:

…”I’d like a donation to be made to the Idaho Foodbank. It feeds hungry Idahoans throughout the state as well as helping other great programs within the community.”

…”I have chosen the Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center charity for our donation because what this program is doing for children is much needed and appreciated. Thank you for your program.”

…”I have chosen to donate to the Idaho Foodbank because I believe that NOBODY should go hungry. Without programs like the Idaho Foodbank many would be starving and abandoned.”

…”I choose Malheur Council on Aging and Community Services to receive this month’s donation because I appreciate the services that they provide to the elderly in our community”

…”I chose Life’s Kitchen to receive this month’s donation for their positive impact on our community’s at-risk young adults.”

…”I choose Pocatello Neighborhood Housing Services because I have a strong belief in community. It’s imperative that there are resources available for families in need. PNHS is providing a great service and I support their cause”

…”I had an uncle with type one diabetes, so I have seen how it changes someone’s life and habits. I also realize how important it is to have to proper tools and training with them to keep this disease in check. Diabetes has been around for a long time and it is a disease I feel we should do more to decrease its impact on daily life.”
