Bozeman Community Raised Over 3,000 Pounds of Food During 967 Minutes of Caring
We had many smiling faces and happy people coming through during our 967 Minutes of Caring food drive outside Smith’s on Friday. Of course the generosity shown had me in tears several times throughout the day.
The generosity was amazing! Hundreds of people donated without expecting anything in return. Our beloved friend Jeremy from Home Depot stopped by and greeted every single person entering the grocery store and most certainly helped out in a HUGE way.
One of the last families to donate came up with a cart full of food saying the Gallatin Valley Food Bank supplied their thanksgiving dinner last year and they were paying it forward this year to someone else. The young boy handed me a rose and simply said, thank you for making a difference. Of course, the waterworks came on full force.
I honestly can’t thank everyone enough. Your energy brought this event to life. Thank you to our sales account executives and everyone else in the office who lent a helping hand. Tim and his staff at the food bank are stoked on nearly 3200 pounds of food and $325 they didn’t have this morning that will be going to feeding the Gallatin Valley for the holidays.
