Thanks for participating in our 2nd annual Tour for Troops!


Local Veterans of Foreign Wars will use funds to benefit youth

Our thanks go out to all the past and present members of the military who took part in our second annual Coleman Homes Tour for Troops campaign!  We donated $50 to the Idaho Veterans of Foreign Wars on behalf of each one who visited a Coleman residential community during the first two weeks of November, and we were pleased to raise $1900 in all.

On Wednesday, November 18th we presented the check to Idaho State Senior Vice Commander of VFW Post 142, Terry L. Thomas and VFW State Quartermaster Thomas Black. Thomas said the funds would be used to benefit the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen, two VFW education programs encouraging students to explore democratic ideals through audio and written essays.

We’re glad for this opportunity to aid local veterans and students, and we couldn’t do it without your participation and support.  Thanks for helping us make it happen!


Congratulations To Our Scarecrow Contest Winners!

Earn cash for your cause with the Coleman Homes Scarecrow Contest

scarecrow 5-01

Taking part in the Scarecrow Contest is easy, and it’s so much fun!  Here’s how to get started:

1) Register by filling out an entry form. You can find it here! The deadline is Monday, October 12 at 5PM.

2) Gather your group and get the creative juices flowing! You can make your scarecrow spooky or silly, or you can even give it a special theme. Here’s some terrific inspiration to help your group brainstorm a scarecrow idea.

3)  Collect your supplies! Making a scarecrow doesn’t have to be costly or complicated. Consider stuff that’s scattered in your garage or basement, or gather those ancient clothes at the back of your closet that have “garage sale” written all over them. Scarecrows are a great way to “repurpose” old items. Click here for more budget-friendly ideas!

4)  HAVE FUN! Building a scarecrow is a terrific way to enjoy a beautiful autumn day with kids! Even the littlest ones can help with tasks like stuffing straw, and it’s great when a whole group can work together to bring a project to life. The Coleman crew had a fantastic time building a scarecrow of their own — take a look!

5)  Drop off your scarecrow creation at your assigned community on Friday, October 16 between 12 and 6PM. Watch for emails verifying your drop-off location.

6) Invite your friends and family to visit and vote for your scarecrow between October 19 and 25 so your group can WIN a cash prize!

For more scarecrow ideas and inspiration, visit the Coleman Homes Pinterest site, or view our Scarecrow Board. We can’t wait to see all the brilliant creations you’ll come up with this year!
