The holidays are upon us and we welcome this opportunity to bring back Hope for the Holidays as part of our Silvercreek Gives program. Every year we come together as a brokerage to support those in our communities that are having a hard time. We provide gifts, food, and household needs for families and seniors in the month of December. Additionally, we volunteer with the Salvation Army in a variety of ways. In 2021, we were able to support 14 families and 5 seniors through this program! We hope to meet and exceed this in 2022. With your help we can!

Oh, There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays!

Lights, candles and festive plants add a wonderful, warm ambiance to your home. By taking a few extra steps like unplugging your holiday lights before you go to bed or when you leave the house, can help you avoid a décor disaster this holiday season. Don’t let decorations wreak havoc on your holiday!

Autumn has arrived in Idaho and with that comes crisp air, fall leaves, and pumpkin-flavored everything. But, there’s much more to do in Idaho than leaf peep and drink pumpkin spice lattes. From apple picking and pumpkin patches to fall cooking classes, there is something for everyone this fall season!
