2016 Volunteer Highlights
 
During the summer and fall of 2016, GGUW staff worked closely with schools, as well as non-profit and governmental agencies in Park County to strengthen the volunteer capacity in those communities. Many groups have mobilized to create a collective effort to support mental wellness and prevent suicide in the Livingston area. There has been an increase in outreach and awareness events requiring volunteer support. GGUW has provided our VolunteerMT.org platform, training for agencies on using and marketing this volunteer recruitment and management system.
 
GGUW partnered with the American Red Cross of Montana for a Day of Caring event. We installed smoke alarms in high-fire-risk homes in Bozeman and Belgrade on October 1st 2016. We helped recruit and support 26 volunteers install 54 smoke alarms for mostly seniors living in mobile homes. It was a wonderful fall day for volunteering - but it was our warm reception into people’s homes and their appreciation for the new alarms that made it feel truly like a “Day of Caring.” We are exploring the possibility of expanding this volunteer installation program into other communities such as Three Forks and Manhattan in 2017.
 
We Couldn’t Do All This Without YOU! Thank you for your commitment to improving lives in this region of Montana. As we see the needs in our community rise, your investments into GGUW and others in this area is deeply heartening.
