Can you provide the resources to help your neighbors, friends, and community members who are in crisis?
Sometimes it can be hard to see what’s right in front of us.
In our community, it’s easy to see the good stuff. The beautiful mountains and the small-town culture, the endless trails, world-class fishing, and an impressive number of arts events and delicious restaurants. But the reality is that there are people from all different backgrounds in Blaine County – people just like you and me who may need our help.
And right now, there are lots of people who are struggling.
Did you know that nearly half of our community lives month to month and can't address an unanticipated crisis? That 95 students in our schools are experiencing homelessness? That fully employed community members are sleeping under stairwells and in unheated campers?
Even though these individuals are our neighbors, teachers, nurses, and friends, we often don’t see that they are having a hard time.
The good news is that together we can fix this. You can support your community and your neighbors by donating to Blaine County Charitable Fund.
These individuals and families simply need a bridge to stability. Whether that is an unexpected medical cost or being displaced from their home, people often simply need a little help paying rent, getting groceries, or accessing transitional housing.
Blaine County Charitable Fund was launched during the COVID-19 Pandemic to ensure that we can respond as a community to times of wide-reaching crisis. In less than three years, we have helped just over 1,000 people. Whether it’s a pandemic, the Limelight Condo Fire, or a personal crisis, you can help provide a bridge to stability.
Will you consider a gift of $50, $100, $500 or $1,200?
Your donation will provide immediate support to people in Blaine County just like you and me. Like Michelle, who is on Social Security Income but can’t work to supplement their income due to knee surgery. Or, like Angie, whose immediate and extended family became homeless in the Limelight Condo Fire.
Honestly, it won’t take much to help these folks get back on their feet. Consider what your gift can do...
$50 Fills a tank of gas
$100 Powers a home for a month
$500 Warms a home for the winter
$1,200 Covers that average grant awarded to household in crisis
$5,000 Secures new housing for two families or provides 200 hours of program delivery
$10,000 Covers an average unexpected expense (medical, car, housing) for 10 individuals
You can provide the resources to help your neighbors, friends, and community members who are in crisis. I hope you will donate to BCCF today.
