BOISE -- Last month, Community Cares Day really showed that the spirit of giving is very much alive in Idaho.

Now, your donations are being distributed to the organizations that lend a helping hand every day.

At the Salvation Army office in Boise Thursday afternoon, KTVB General Manager Doug Armstrong dropped off a check for more than $16,500. The offices in Caldwell and Nampa received theirs earlier today.

There are thousands of meals that can be given with this money, we'll be using it to put people in apartments, so that they won't be homeless any longer, said Major John Stennett, Salvation Army Boise Chapter.

Checks will be delivered Friday to the Idaho Foodbank and the City Light Home for Women and Children, which is operated by Boise Rescue Mission Ministries.

Jubilee House in Twin Falls, also benefits from Cares Day, which takes place each December, a couple weeks before Christmas.
