BOISE-- A store usually filled top to bottom with donation boxes is now struggling to stock up on inventory.
The Idaho Youth Ranch says they're desperately in need of donations this time of year to get them through the winter.
They are used to boxes stacked three or four high, but now areas of their store that are typically packed, sit empty.
They are down in the stores, a little bit because of the economy and other factors around the valley, but in general, donations are down, said director of distribution Gregg Crow. We need everything. Household goods, decor, artworks, collectibles, jewelry, clothing - men's and kid's items are hard to come by.
There are 27 Idaho Youth Ranch stores around Idaho and one in Ontario.
