What started in the mid ’80s as a week of camp for a handful of children diagnosed with cancer is now much, much more. Yes, Camp Rainbow Gold is still a summer oncology camp, but it’s also a sibling camp and a family camp. It’s a college scholarship program and a teen support group. It’s 365 days of making a difference in the lives of these children as well as their families and others who support them.
Camp Rainbow Gold is an independent non-profit organization.
Idaho Lumber is an annual supporter of the Share Your Heart Ball which raises money to send kids to camp.
The Hunger Coalition builds a healthy community through access to good food and addresses the root causes of food insecurity in collaboration with key partners.
The Hunger Coalition envisions a community where everyone has access to good food regardless of economic circumstances, where human connections grow, and all are empowered to speak up and be heard. Idaho Lumber donates annually to this cause.
We are proud sponsors of our local high school athletes. We know that involvement in athletics not only promotes healthy lifestyles, but also helps young men and women learn better communication skills, problem solving, and how to work together for a common goal.
These assets all serve to improve our community.

Papoose Club is a non-profit volunteer organization that supports youth-oriented groups in the Wood River Valley through fundraising activities and community events. Everyone is welcome! The club was founded in 1954 by a group of local moms and was formally incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1975.
Owner, Angi Hunter, is a board member. She, and other members of the Idaho Lumber staff and their families, are consistent volunteers at annual Papoose Club events like the Pancake Breakfast and Kindercup, a children's ski and snowboard competition.
The purpose of the Sawtooth Rangers Riding Club is to operate without profit in the promotion of horsemanship in the community by helping 4-H clubs, Rodeo oriented groups, Riding Clinicians and other activities related to Horsemanship. Each year the Sawtooth Rangers coordinate the Days of the Old West Rodeo in Hailey, July 2-4. Idaho Lumber and Hardware is a proud annual sponsor of the event.
Sitting on 191 acres at the base of the Sawtooth Mountain Range, Swiftsure Ranch Therapeutic Equestrian Center is a nonprofit 501(c)3 with a special mission to encourage the physical, mental and emotional well-being of children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted activities and therapies.
110 riders come to Swiftsure Ranch each week to participate in equine therapeutic riding and learn the skills to adapt to the world around them. This means that lessons are adapted to their unique physical, mental and/or emotional needs. Riding can build character, confidence and self-esteem in riders, as well as give them opportunities to access the outdoors and recreation.
Idaho Lumber is happy to contribute to this wonderful organization.
