BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) — Juniper, along with 15 other restaurants are hosting a “Night of Giving” Thursday, July 12th. They will be donating a portion of sales to the International Rescue Committee in support of the refugee families impacted by the tragic June 30th stabbing.
Mangers at Juniper say the restaurant community wanted to get involved but didn't know how.
After talking to neighbors, they all decided to come together to do what they know best, serve the community.
"It's really just about, as a community getting together and showing support for our neighbors, for family and raising a glass and breaking bread just to show the importance of us sticking together and kind of not letting hate have the last word," said Claire Everson, Social Media/Marketing manager at Juniper.
Everson says all the restaurants were eager to jump in to show love and give back to community who gives to them.
"We're a really tight community in downtown Boise and everyone does such a great job of supporting each other, supporting local and this is an opportunity for us to give back in something that we feel really passionate about," said Kaycey Montgomery, Owner of Juniper.
This is an all-day affair. From restaurant open to close, your next meal can help out the IRC and a refugee family in need.
Here is a list of the participating restaurants:
-Red Feather Lounge
-The Mode Lounge
-The Chocolat Bar
-City Peanut Shop
