PaddleHeads challenge community, local businesses to join the team and donate this holiday season
Wednesday, the PaddleHeads announced their Donation Drive to benefit Missoula Youth Homes, taking place on December 16th, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at Ogren Park Allegiance Field.
“The holiday season is truly about gratitude, giving, and community.” Said PaddleHeads’ Director of Marketing, Taylor Rush. “Supporting the youth and underserved in our community is a key aspect of our core values, and we are challenging the rest of Missoula to step up to the plate, and help us make the largest impact we can.”
Missoula Youth Homes is currently serving 254 kids, the majority which are between 12-17 years old. This includes group homes, emergency shelters, support programs for teens transitioning out of foster care and our family care program. During the holidays and throughout the year Missoula Youth Homes is in continual need of household, personal and toiletry items.
We invite the entire Missoula community to join us as we celebrate this Season of Giving and ask that you help with what they need, we’ll help with what they want. Missoula Youth Homes’ basic needs are: personal hygiene items for boys and girls, twin sheets and comforter sets, socks, household items and movie, bowling, skiing or swimming passes. The PaddleHeads also recognize the joy in receiving a gift. Because of this, in honor of their Season Ticket Holders, the PaddleHeads are kicking off the Donation Drive with $1,000 in gift cards and Christmas Presents to Missoula Youth Homes.
