Annual Events

DRESS A CHILD

United Way of Butte and Anaconda, in conjunction with the Salvation Army Backpack program, provides funding for low income children from Butte and Anaconda to receive new outfits in preparation for the upcoming school year.  In August of 2018, we had150 children receive school clothing and backpacks.  This year's event, held at Walmart would not have been such a success had it not been for the 74 volunteer "Shopping Buddies" giving of their time to take a child into the clothes/shoes section of Walmart and help them spend their $100.00 voucher.

 

DAY OF THE CHILD

United Way of Butte and Anaconda, along with many of our Agency Partners and other organizations, hosts an event that focuses on the children of our communities.  A carnival atmosphere takes place and last year's theme was "Fun with Celebrations".  The Day of the Child event is held in March at the Butte Plaza Mall.  Activities, prizes and education opportunities for children of all ages are available at no cost.  Each child that attended received a chance to win a Boy's or Girls bicycle, both of which were courtesy of Walmart.

 

DAY OF CARING

United Way of Butte and Anaconda organizes a Day of Caring in June or July.  This community impact project provides sweat equity to those in need.  We rely heavily on volunteers to make this all possible.  In the past, senior citizens, veterans and community facilities have all received help. 

 

COMMUNITY BABY SHOWER

United Way of Butte and Anaconda partners with the Healthy Family Network of Butte to host a Community Baby Shower in May for low income mothers or mothers-to-be.  All participants receive presents for their baby and can win larger prizes.  Educational opportunities are also provided.

 

STONE SOUP EVENT

United Way of Butte and Anaconda hosts a Stone Soup event in January.  Volunteers contribute items to the stone soup to make it a nutritional meal for our citizens who receive supplies from the Butte Emergency Food Bank.  The soup was assembled at the Silver Bow Developmental Disabilities Council Nutrition Kitchen.  Containers of soup are delivered to the Butte Emergency Food Bank for distribution.
