Filling the need, locally
SERVING ATHOL, BAYVIEW, CAREYWOOD AND OTHER SMALL, SURROUNDING, RURAL, UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES IN NORTH IDAHO
WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE
Founded in January of 2022, Bestowing the Basics is a new charitable 501(c)3 non-profit organization, established in the city of Athol. Lined alongside the outskirts of Lake Pend Orielle, we created this organization to purposely serve Athol, Bayview, Careywood, and other small, rural, underserved communities throughout north Idaho.
Our mission: To meet and fill the varying needs that arise for individuals and families living in small, rural, underserved north Idaho communities. Providing the most basic and necessary essentials to help feed, clothe, clean, warm, and shelter them; nurturing their needs, cultivating relationships, serving in love, and building community. Through our various programs, we look to support individuals and families who encounter unforeseen personal hardships. We extend ourselves to lend a helping hand, no matter how small or big the circumstance might be.
In our newness, we are constantly learning how we can best serve our community, alongside existing groups and organizations. We gain a better understanding of what those needs are by partnering with area food banks, school district, hospital, small businesses, and other community oriented agencies.
Our main objective is to reinforce and build a strong sense of community. We do that by walking in love, serving in sincerity, exemplifying heart, humility, and humanity.
