By shopping at the Idaho Youth Ranch this weekend, you can help at-risk Idaho youth - facing many serious issues like homelessness, abuse, neglect and trauma.

Saturday and Sunday are "Everyone Shops" days at Treasure Valley Idaho Youth Ranch thrift stores.

"Really, we want to educate the Treasure Valley about how shopping at the Idaho Youth Ranch provides promising futures for Idaho's most vulnerable kids," said Whitney Springston, Idaho Youth Ranch marketing director. "Our goal is to get folks to come in today and help us out, because we've helped thousands and thousands of kids, but there are still kids waiting, and we just can't grow fast enough."

Springston says calls for help to the youth ranch are up more than 50 percent this year.
