Funding Community 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 2020, even with the restrictions of Covid 19 we had108 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 61 volunteer shoppers giving of their time to shop for these children.  Clothes were placed in gift bags and delivered to the families, in Anaconda, Deerlodge, Whitehall and Butte.

STONE SOUP EVENT

United Way of Butte and Anaconda hosts three Stone Soup events in February. Ten community volunteers from Butte contributed 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.  Two other groups, ten volunteers in Anaconda and eight employees from FCR assembled sacks of dried soup ingredients.  Sacks of ingredients were delivered to the Butte Emergency Food Bank and Anaconda's Project Care for distribution.
