Is your closet filled with coats you no longer use? The Wall of Warmth is a great place to donate them. We are on a quest to keep East Idaho warm this winter by giving thousands of coats to those in need.

Local realtor Valorie Blanchard wanted to do something to give back to the community, so she started the Wall of Warmth in 2017. Now in its sixth year, the Wall of Warmth has grown to involve more East Idaho communities, including Driggs, Rexburg, Rigby, Idaho Falls, Shelley, Blackfoot, and Pocatello. As the project continues to grow, Valorie has partnered with the Hall Foundation, JustServe, Streamline Chiropractic, and several other local businesses. The goal is to collect over 8,000 coats this year.

How it Started

November 14 - 25th, 2023

The Wall of Warmth will be located in seven communities throughout East Idaho. Between November 14 - 25th, 2023, we encourage any individual to take a coat off the Wall of Warmth for themselves, family, or friends.
