LINC Prepares for Idaho Gives

By Jen Grushdale

There’s nothing like an annual event to make one pause and reflect. What did we do last year? Feels like it was pretty busy with lots of changes. But what did we do? Well, a lot, although most of it gets recorded as numbers. Not interesting. What is interesting? The stories. Usually of events and other shared experiences.

A year ago, we partnered with an all-inclusive dance team from Capital High School to perform Michael Jackson’s Thriller at the Center on the Grove. Plus, staff and friends competed in a hot sauce challenge!

Or like our Boo to the Flu and Covid Too event with our local health department getting folks vaccinated last fall. We invited our consumers and our business park neighbors to come find out what we do and get their shots at the same time!

Or our Operation Advocacy where people from around our state came together in February, in conjunction with the Fred Riggers Disability Awareness Day at the Capitol where we overwhelmed the Rotunda with our advocates.

Or our Power Independent Living campaign and website, where we partnered with other entities in the state impacted by low wages for direct care workers. This new platform will enable all of us to organize around this important issue.

These are just a few of the more public examples of things we did here at LINC. And now it’s time to participate in Idaho Gives, the Idaho Nonprofit’s annual giving drive on behalf of Idaho nonprofits. While we don’t have any big plans like last year, we hope to raise some money and some awareness. Join us online at
