First-year medical students in the WWAMI program at Montana State University are collecting books, warm winter clothing and food donations for a service project in Browning.

The students, Montana students in their first year of the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) collective of the University of Washington Medical School, will take the donations when they travel to Browning on Oct. 27-29.

WWAMI organizers say that they picked Browning, which is located within the Blackfeet Reservation at the foot of Glacier National Park and is one of the poorest areas in Montana, for their project because residents experience some of the state's worst unemployment and lowest wages as well as some of its harshest winters.

The students are seeking donations of books and warm winter clothing for all age levels as well as food donations for a meal of chili, bread and salad that they will prepare and serve while in Browning.

Donations can be dropped off by Oct. 26 at boxes located at the Great Rocky Mountain Toy Company in Bozeman, the Belgrade Clinic, the entry to the MSU Bookstore, the staff lounge of the MSU Library, REI in Bozeman, Medical Associates at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital and Country Bookshelf.
