To Our Treasured Donors, Sponsors and Volunteers
IFRM would like to bring everyone a friendly update regarding COVID-19. To start off, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for each of you for your patience and support – we wouldn’t be able to continue without each of you!
With the outbreak of COVID-19 surrounding us, there have been many new changes and challenges facing us each day. While there are no black-and-white instructions on how to handle something like this, IFRM is striving to be in compliance with local, state and federal guidelines and suggestions. Our top priority will continue to be our guests, volunteers and community, and we are doing our part to ensure the best possible outcome.
There are a few key changes for the foreseeable future:
  • 1st Street Thrift will close for at least the next 21 days due to the “Stay-at-home order” that Governor Little passed this afternoon. If you would like to donate items to the store, please hang on to the donations and we will gladly take them once this time has passed.
  • We are only accepting food and monetary donations at this time. With food donations slowing down, our shelves are running low. If you can or are able to give, please do! Please do not bring food donations to the mission – give us a call and we will arrange pick-up. To see a list of items we need, click here.
  • No volunteers for at least 21 days – we are SO thankful for those who want to continue to stay involved, however safety takes priority right now. We will continue to do phone orientations, so if you know someone who wants to get involved after this has all blown over, please encourage them to complete the Volunteer Application
We will continue to send updates keeping everyone in the loop on what’s happening at IFRM. If you have any questions, please reach out or give us a call at the office.
For more details, check out this article about how IFRM is prayerfully navigating it’s way through the current COVID-19 national and Idaho response. Please see the button above on the up to date map of where confirmed COVID-19 cases exist around the globe. We trust that Jesus is using these circumstances to bring help, hope, and a future in a way that continues to bring Him glory!

Upcoming Events


All, with respect to the President recommendations on responding to the COVID-19, we are suspending the upcoming events since they were expected to be gatherings of more than 50 people. Thank you for your support!
