This week. . .

Hi friends,

I have a question for you . . . Do you have a truck? Sometimes we receive requests for small moves, dump runs, and other jobs that do not require a U-Haul, but a pick up would be perfect. If you do, can you give me a call or an email so that I can ask you specifically when we have a need like that? Thanks!!

Here are the folks I'd like you to meet this week! We can help:
  • Jaylene is a lady with physical disabilities who has to move into transitional housing with her partner and four children (two of whom are mentally ill) on the 14th of May. Some of her things go into storage and some goes to the hotel. We need 4-6 volunteers to move her, and her partner will help. Imagine Missoula will rent a U-Haul for the day.

  • Shawn is a gentleman we met a couple of weeks ago who still needs two volunteers to arrange the empty furniture he is navigating around in his small apartment. He also will need a lift chair picked up for him and delivered when his paperwork at the Salvation Army goes through. He is living with mental and physical disabilities.
If you can help any of our friends above, please call Nina at 546-4697. And remember, Thursday nights at the Central join us for Imagine Missoula's Night Out! We gather casually for a beer (and a tasty burger -they have a happy hour special until seven!) at 6:30. You can stay for the trivia at 8!

Thank you, volunteers, as always, for making Missoula a better place - by meeting one need at a time.

Nina
