Youth at Plato's Closet

Support Local Journalism


Plato's Closet is hosting a fundraiser now through Aug. 8 to provide high-quality school clothing for homeless Treasure Valley teens. The local teen clothing store has committed to matching customer donations dollar for dollar during these two weeks, and the proceeds will ensure that children in the Teen Program at Boise Rescue Mission Ministries have everything they need to start the school year strong. To participate in the Plato's Closet back-to-school fundraiser, customers can choose to either round up their purchase to the next dollar or donate any dollar amount of their choice. Donations can be made at Plato's Closet at 8017 W. Franklin Road, Boise.

"We are so grateful for our generous customers who, for the past five years in a row, have helped us outfit our local, deserving teens with popular, current brands and styles for school," owner Justin Barney said in a press release. "It's a cause that is very close to my heart, and it's been a pleasure partnering with the Rescue Mission."
