The volunteers will drop 400 bags on doorsteps of the Cattail Creek neighborhood from 27th to Davis and Cattail to Catamount. 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 16th 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, coordinated by the MSU Office of Activities and Engagement and Gallatin Valley Food Bank, will be held Nov. 7-21.
"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 11th good neighbor bag distribution by MSU and the Bozeman Good Neighbor Committee, which includes representatives from MSU, Associated Students of MSU, the City of Bozeman, Peak Property Management and the Downtown Bozeman Association. The committee has already delivered more than 4,000 bags to households in Bozeman.
