Keeping Boise Nice could mean something small, like a smile at a stranger or holding the door open for the person behind you. It can mean something more, like shopping at a local business, donating to a local non-profit, or volunteering for a local organization. It also often means standing up for someone in need or advocating for the protection of vulnerable groups or natural areas.
