BOISE, Idaho — Gomez got the idea one night while watching the news with her parents. She decided to do what she could to brighten people's lives around her. So, she now hands out roses and hand-written love notes to people that need them. Everyone from doctors and nurses at St. Luke's, to everyday folks she meets in downtown Boise.

The Shine A Light Award is presented by Diamond Heating and Cooling. If you know of a person or organization that's worthy of being recognized for the wonderful work they're doing in our community, please nominate them here!
