Mary Poole Featured in Starbucks “Upstanders” Docuseries


Several months ago, Soft Landing Missoula’s Mary Poole was selected to be featured in Starbucks docuseries called “Upstanders”. This unique collection of short films focuses on ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in our communities. Mary is one of 11 Upstanders chosen from throughout the entire country. For those of you who have met Mary, you know that her huge heart, open mindedness, and passion for creating a welcoming home for refugees made her stand out among others as a community agent for positive change. 

We are so honored to share this film and celebrate Soft Landing’s work with the Missoula community. Join Soft Landing, the IRC, and representatives from Starbucks at The Wilma on Monday, October 23 from 7:00- 8:30 pm (doors open at 6p) for a free screening of the “Upstanders” series. Each film is about 5 minutes long. There will be free Starbucks coffee and popcorn, and a cash bar will also be available. Help us fill The Wilma for this amazing celebration!
