Soft Landing Missoula has been busy getting our families ready for school, helping with a few more moves, and planning for the next several months. We are so excited to share these updates with you!
Please mark your calendar for Missoula’s first annual “Welcoming Week” from September 15-24. SLM will join thousands of other organizations in this national event to celebrate welcoming people in our cities. Join SLM and our partners IRC, JRPC, SALAM, Montana World Affairs Council, and more, for a week of cultural activities. More information about the exciting events taking place will be shared soon.
We were thrilled with the number of donations we received for our Personal and Home Care Drive. Your generosity helped meet the needs of our families – we can’t thank you enough! Just like in your home, our families will eventually need more personal care items. Your continued donations of these items will always be appreciated!
As we get closer to our one-year anniversary, we are still amazed by supporters like you. You continue to call, volunteer, donate, and share our story. Saying “Thank you” doesn’t begin to cover our gratitude for you. Please keep an eye on our website for new donation and volunteer needs.
Mary, Molly and Carlyn
