Welcome Carolina Valderrama-Echavarria!!

Carolina Valderrama-Echavarria stepped onto Team Potato this year, for community outreach. Carolina somehow finds time to work for the Idaho Potato Drop, NeighborWorks Boise, she teaches at Boise State University, and also volunteers her time to make our community better through non-profits like Paint The Town Boise, Idaho Charitable Events, and more! She truly is a remarkable person, with a huge passion for making our community better. Carolina has been organizing non-profit events for the Idaho Potato Drop to sponsor and attend, to help build awareness for them. We are delighted to have you with us Carolina!

Parking Downtown

With more than 15,000 spots available in downtown and an additional 2,000 in the west wing of the BSU parking lot to shuttle people to the event, attending the potato drop should be extremely convenient and easy. We look forward to seeing everyone down there to ring in 2015.
