1) See you all tomorrow night- Tuesday, November 1st, from 6-8p at the Urey Underground Lecture hall as we present information on “Refugee Resettlement in Missoula”. Come learn the basics and hear first hand from Wilmot Collins, a Helena resident and former Liberian refugee. Q&A to follow.
2)The IRC has posted 2 additional part time positions for their Missoula office! You can find out more about them by going to rescue.org- careers- search jobs and apply- and selecting from the drop down menu US-MISSOULA-MT. Any further questions can be directed at [email protected]
3)Your generosity has overwhelmed our capacity once again! The storage containers at the Seventh Day Adventist Church are full and we will be suspending drop off hours for a little while. We will be moving some of the stuff out during the month of November so if you can hold on to larger donations for a little bit, that would be appreciated. We will be sure to let you know when things open back up. If you do have items to donate, please email [email protected] so that we can get a basic inventory of what is out there and we may be able to move items directly into a house. We are continuing to accept winter clothing and you can arrange drop off with our amazing Heather and Irene with the above email.
4) Our crowdrise campaign ends on Friday and we are getting there! This weekend was amazing for donations and we only $4,000 left to go! Please help us make that last push! If 200 more people can give just $20, we will be there! Share on FB with your friends and give if you can. We are counting on you to get the word out! Could you commit to directly emailing 5 close friends and asking them to give? Any amount counts! If you have already given, would you consider giving a little more? We can do this!
5) We will be celebrating the opening of Soft Landing Missoula’s new office 939 Stephens, Suite C this coming Sunday the 6th from 1-4! Come by and say hi! It will be an informal gathering with a few snacks and beverages and a chance to check out the new digs!
