Coat and Blanket Drive for the Homeless
When you think about the homeless, what's the first thing that comes to mind? In the winter, for me, it's always been "cold." The idea that people who have nowhere to live don't have any warm clothes, blankets or even hats is devastating. Missoula has a large homeless population and we all need to come together as a community if we want them to survive this winter. That's why The Last Best Store has partnered with Housing Humans Inc., a local non-profit that helps people in need find housing and get back on their feet again. We're doing a coat drive at The Last Best Store from now through February 20th! If you have a gently used or new item you'd like to donate please drop it off at our store during business hours.
Now that winter is here, Missoula's homeless population is in need of coats, blankets, hats gloves and boots.
This winter, we need your help. We at The Last Best Store want to make sure that no one goes through the cold days of January and February without the basic necessities of life: coats, blankets, hats, gloves and boots.
Please, Give generously!
