A team of volunteers will deliver good neighbor bags on behalf of the Montana State University/Bozeman Good Neighbor Committee on Saturday, Nov. 1. The campaign will drop 300 bags on doorsteps of the neighborhood located at North 9th Street and North 11th Street between Mendenhall Street and Durston Road.
The reusable bags will contain tips on how to be a good neighbor, a community event calendar, Streamline and Skyline bus schedules, and information about parking and shoveling during the winter months.
Bags will also contain details about the 15th annual Can the Griz Food Drive, which pits MSU against the University of Montana in a contest to see which community can collect the most food for its respective food bank. The food drive, which is coordinated by the MSU Office of Activities and Engagement and Gallatin Valley Food Bank, will be held Nov. 8-22.
"We live in a vibrant community where year-round residents and students live side-by-side. The good neighbor bags aim to help bridge the differences between our student residents and full-time residents and help these neighborhoods work together,” said Amy Kanuch, MSU community relations specialist.
This is the seventh “good neighbor bag” distribution by the MSU/Bozeman Good Neighbor Committee, which consists of representatives from MSU, Associated Students of MSU, the City of Bozeman, Peak Property Management, the Downtown Bozeman Association and First Security Bank. The committee has already delivered more than 2,500 bags to households in Bozeman.
