Superheroes, coffee and more this week!

Good Morning Imagine Missoula!

I hope you had a fun long weekend! Here's what is needed this week:

First: Tomorrow, Wednesday July 6th is the day we have been waiting for - staining Sharon's fence with the Superheroes of Kindness! Come and join the pint sized heroes with your full size energy and let's get this fence done! She also needs us to throw a new top on her storage tent (easy-peasy) and a couple other little things. Call me ASAP and let me know if you'll be joining the fun - 5:30 pm.

Second: We need two more volunteers (thanks Angie!) to sell Receding Waters Coffee at the Sunday Carousel Market, this Sunday July 10th! Come out and help City Brew Coffee and Untied Way raise money for our neighbors who are struggling from the floods. 10-3.

I received this email today: "Nina, here are the things we need: One woman is disabled and needs assistance installing an AC in her apartment. The other is a man who is also disabled and needs help installing equipment to make his bathroom more safe - i.e. 2 grab bars, different shower head and a special toilet seat. Both of these clients' landlords won't install the items for them without charge, and they can't afford to pay for it and our program can't either. They already have the equipment we purchased or had donated. Their landlord said that outside people can install the items as long as they are done by a person who either is or has been a professional at this type of thing (like construction, contractors, etc.)" If you or someone you know meets the qualification and can do this, let me know!

Lillian (you gotta check out her teapot collection!) still needs someone to mow her lawn for her for the rest of the summer. She doesn't have a mower, so if you can bring yours, fantastic! If you need help with this, that's what I'm here for.

And last but not least: Our friend Penny needs someone to haul away broken windows and glass from her yard and take the stuff to the dump.

What you do makes a huge difference every time you touch a person's life with your care. You are always amazing to me and to the folks in town who know that Imagine Missoula will be there when people need us. Keep bringing this joy to our wonderful friends in this beautiful place.

Thank you!
