“Missoula Gives” 2021 to Benefit Over 150 Non-Profits
The annual community-wide fundraiser 'Missoula Gives' with the theme "Support - Connect - Give" is coming up on May 6th and 7th, and keep in mind, the effort has expanded to include 'Bitterroot Gives'.
I feel that over the past year, people have been feeling a bit helpless, especially those who were not financially affected by the pandemic. People want to help, but they don't know how. This is a great opportunity to keep your dollars in the community and see your contributions working around you!
There are more than 150 very worthy non-profits participating this year, but I wanted to bring your attention to one that is close to my heart. CASA for Missoula gives a voice to neglected children. CASA volunteers do not need any special skills or education, they just need to be compassionate and willing to give their time to help Montana kids in need. I am a CASA volunteer and it has really opened my eyes to the struggle that parents face when Child & Family Services becomes involved with their families. CASAs Kim and Susan, along with Foster Mom Angie, share their experiences with CASA of Missoula and the child welfare system in the conversation below. It may inspire you to contribute monetarily, or, become a CASA yourself!
