February 2022 Kit Drive Success!
Thank you Gallatin Valley for your amazing offering of time and household goods! We nearly tripled the total kits delivered last year, in a year refugees in Montana really need it. We’ve enabled our partners in Montana to apply more resources to our new neighbors and provide a warmer welcome to our community.
Gallatin Refugee Connections wants to thank all of the volunteers who gathered at Pilgrim Congregational Church in February for this year’s Kit Drive. In cooperation with Soft Landing Missoula and the International Rescue Committee (IRC), over 400 kits were assembled and delivered to help refugee families start their new lives in Missoula.
If your church or organization would like to play a role in this effort next year, contact us at email@example.com, or call 406-209-0971. Finally, if you couldn’t join us for this year’s drive, reach out with a donation to any one of these Montana organizations listed below.
