projects

Adopt a Sox: Come write cards and letters to Montana military personnel stationed overseas during the holidays. Your letter will be included in a large box of useful items!

Bridgercare: Sex Trivia, sticker condoms and chalk the walk to increase MSU students awareness about STIs, consent, LGBTQ+ issues, contraception, etc.

Great Beginnings Montessori: Help trimming, weeding, staining and updating our playground. We would like to touch up some rooms with paint.

Cancer Support Community: We will have the volunteers helping us outside keeping our yard and building looking nice! We will have them pull weeds throughout the property, staining the fence around our facility, helping clean the inside of our building since we work with immuno-compromised participants.

Habitat for Humanity: The ReStore sells new and used building materials, furniture and home goods to community members to raise money for Habitat. Volunteers help unload delivery trucks, rotate inventory and organize the store. As we transition from summer into fall, the Habitat ReStore is in need of a volunteer group that can help us organize the store and get all inventory indoors. This will include helping us process donations that are not selling and organizing various parts of the store.

Gallatin Valley Land Trust:We will be clearing and building water drainages on the new and old sections of Painted Hills trail

Gallatin Valley Food Bank: Repackaging food, garden work, produce processing, organization, and store cleaning.

MSU Pollinator Health Center: At the MSU Pollinator Health Center come help with weeding, focusing on specific problem plants, planting transplants and working in the garden.
