FVCC Collects Toiletries for Veterans in Need

In honor of the 9/11 Tribute Movement “The Great Rollout”, Flathead Valley Community College’s AmeriCorps Office is collecting toiletries between now and September 11 to help provide much needed relief for veterans that rely on the Northwest Montana Food Pantry, Samaritan House and the local veterans clinics for assistance.

A donation box is located in the Blake Hall foyer on the Kalispell campus Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  On September 11, volunteers will be on hand to collect donated items and raise awareness of the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance and AmeriCorps programs.

Additional drop box locations are located throughout the Flathead Valley and include Albertsons, Smith’s and Community Action Partnership of Northwest Montana.
