It’s that time of year!! This year Soft Landing Missoula will be participating again in the national day of giving, #GivingTuesday!

2018 has been a jam-packed year full of incredible refugee families and generous Missoulians. We have held countless events to bring refugees and Missoulians together including Welcoming Week, Supper Clubs, lectures, community talks, and the World Refugee Day Soccer Tournament. SLM has increased our existing programs and direct services for Missoula’s over 240 refugees including drivers education twice a week, one-on-one English tutoring, and our brand new Teen Program to help refugee teens build connections in their new homes and new community. Our Community Resource Center has flourished into a thriving hub with nearly 500 visits from refugees, volunteers, and community members in October alone!


On November 27, we encourage you to make a gift to Soft Landing Missoula to help us reach our goal of $5,000!

Winter Clothing Drive!


It’s that time of year! The air is getting crisp, there’s snow in the mountains, and Missoula’s refugee community is starting to feel the cold!!

STARTING TODAY- We are on the lookout for most winter clothing items for adults and children of all ages such as:

  • Hats

  • Gloves + Mittens

  • Socks

  • Boots

  • Jackets

  • Snow Pants

  • Snow Suits

  • Long Underwear

  • Yak Traks

  • Also welcoming blankets and other warm items!

As always, we ask that items be new or VERY gently used in order to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We care deeply to create a truly welcoming and complete home for families, not burden them with broken or heavily-used items that may prove unusable. (No stains, tears, frayed edges, pet hair/odor, missing pieces, etc.)

If you have any items you would like to donate, please drop them off at Soft Landing’s office: 939 Stephens Ave Suite C Missoula, MT 59801 between 9am-3pm M-F. We are so excited for Missoula’s newest refugees to experience their first Montana winter, so help us make it as enjoyable as possible by keeping them toasty warm!!
