This is why we do it. . .

Here are some letters from people Imagine Missoula helped recently. I wanted to share the joy of hearing from these wonderful folks who have benefited from our little non-profit:

All done, yay!! they even helped me pick up the replacement bed!! Nice guys, very quick and efficient, so glad to have it done so my brother can have a decent place to come home to. Thanks!!!- Jeanine

I am writing to express my appreciation for a wonderful lady and
gentleman from Able Tree Service who came to my house yesterday to take away a big tree that had fallen against my roof. I am so happy to know that, there are beautiful giving people in the world, at least in Missoula! Two people came and helped an 80 year old woman to feel safer, and all this was done with such good humor and pleasant attitude. They handled this huge job as though they had come to pick up a leaf on the ground. It took a big truck a ladder, a chain saw and a lot of elbow grease to cut down, haul, and chew up the whole mess. That is not all, they swept, raked and left my driveway looking better than when they came. I found these angels by contacting a great organization called Imagine Missoula, a wonderful free help-line. Nina, a goddess who works there, came to my house to assess the problem, then, within two days she had me connected with Able Tree Service.

Enormous thanks to you all. There are other services available at Imagine Missoula. I hope to volunteer in some capacity to try to pay forward the great help I've received.

Sincerely,
Renee
