Show Us Your SuperShero
We’re hosting a SuperShero party on Thursday, October 5 from 5 to 7 PM. Come dressed as your favorite female hero or role model, or bring something that inspires you. Make your own Shero cape and mask to express what empowers you. We’ll be having lots of fun and serving snacks. All girls from K to grade 5 are invited and we hope you can join us for an evening of crafts, imagination, and celebrating Girl Power! Thank you to the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming for co-hosting this event.
AARP Community Challenge Grant
We recently received a $18,369 2023 Community Challenge Grant from AARP Livable Communities and AARP Montana. This grant program is part of the nationwide AARP Livable Communities initiative, which helps cities, towns, and rural areas become great places to live for residents of all ages. The funds will be used to provide park benches and picnic tables at our community garden, making this beautiful outdoor space more accessible and comfortable for everyone to enjoy.
Donate to our food pantry now and double your dollars to help the area residents we serve. Arlee CDC has been invited to participate in the “Be a Friend in Deed, Help Those in Need” campaign from Town Pump. The Town Pump Charitable Foundation will match each dollar collected by our organization up to $2,500 now through November 30. All funds will go directly to our food pantry.
