I am continually inspired and struck by the dedication and time our volunteers have committed to make Soft Landing Missoula's vision of a safe, welcoming, and informed community possible.
As Molly, our Volunteer Coordinator (and more) was working hard this week to pull additonal resources and information together for folks to make it easier to volunteer (see below), she came across a quote that I can't stop thinking about, "Volunteers are not paid; not because they are worthless, but because they are invaluable." We couldn't agree more! We could not be doing any of our work without such incredible volunteers in our lives. You bless this community.
For the next twelve weeks, we are highlighting a handful of volunteers in a portrait campaign--again, thanks to another amazing volunteer! We are so excited to share our first supporter story today. Read on for more!
Thanks for being amazing!
Supporter Story: Mike Stark
"(Working with the family), it made some of the difficulties and hardships that these families are going through, whether they are here or in Europe or Africa, wherever they are, very real and very tangible." Read more.
Here's how you get involved!
We are trying to do a better job of letting people know about volunteer opportunities through Soft Landing Missoula, as needs can change daily. So, you now have two ways to find volunteer opportunities with us:
- Request to join our closed Facebook group - Soft Landing Missoula Volunteers.
- Check our new Volunteer page on our website for a list of current opportunities.
Thank you Missoula!

While we work out details with our partners, we wanted to be able to at least give you the date, June 17th, and a general idea of times to mark on your calendars. Learn more!
