A woman who just moved to town for a new job has had all of her and her families belongings shipped to Missoula from out-of-state in anticipation of her new position and re-location. These were held with a local storage company. Unfortunately, the family’s belongings storage unit was broken into. The burglars left only some clothing. The storage company does not cover the loss. She has two small children, 18-months-old and 4-years-old. All furniture was stolen including baby crib, child’s bed, master bed and mattress, kitchen table and chairs, all couches, patio furniture, kids toys, etc. Help in the form of gift cards, furniture, or anything any things would help to welcome them to Missoula despite this very sad initial experience. Please contact 406-303-3023.

With the summer season in full swing it’s time to get out and enjoy all of Montana’s treasures. The Home and Community Based Services program would like to ensure that all members of the Missoula community have the opportunity to participate in outdoor recreation trips. It is partnering with the Missoula Parks and Recreation Department to put on two to three accessible rafting trips in July and August for people with physical disabilities and an attendant of their choice. It is asking the Missoula community to support this effort by sponsoring one or more of the participants. The cost associated with each person is approximately $35 and includes all equipment and also covers the cost of an additional attendant for each participant (caregiver, spouse, friend, family, other support).
