What A Week! On the Radar! New Ways to Support IM!

Hey folks! What a week! I am completely impressed (again!) with the generous heart you share as one of the most diverse group of volunteers I have ever known! You met SEVEN needs this week! Woot!! What an unbelievable show of loving care.

Please put these two folks (and one event!) on your radar for next week:

Fred and his twin sister (they are both 70! :) need our help moving - they have lost their home. They have two other sisters who are helping them get a new place, but they need our people power to get them where they need to be! We are thinking next Saturday or Sunday (21st or 22nd).

Kathleen called me and told me her hard story, and I went to meet her yesterday. When she opened the door we shouted "Oh it's YOU!" and fell crying into each others arms. I have met her (and her babies) before on many occasions (how very Missoula!) She needs folks to go on a schedule to give her rides to her get her children from Ravalli on Friday's at 11 and take them back to her ex on Sundays at 6. I am working on a spreadsheet of people who can help her with these precious twice-a-month visits.

And on April 21st (next Saturday!) we are working with some of our friends from Youth Homes to participate in the Annual Clark Fork Clean Up! If you would like to make Missoula even more beautiful, please contact Jess 552-5297.

This weekend, remember to swing by Big Sky Brewery's taproom to grab your All Souls Ale, then head downtown to the MSO Hub store to grab a t-shirt (and enter to win a free bottle of All Souls Ale, too!) and then check out or website - we finally have a DONATE button! Yipee!! Also, listen for our Community Kindness Project radio spots on U 104.5, Trail 103.3, Jack 105.9 and ESPN Montana 97.5! Imagine Missoula is blooming!

Spread the word, please, about these easy and fun ways to support our elderly, single parents, and other neighbors who have had no one to turn to - but now trust us to be there for them! Thank you.

Have a great weekend!
Love,
