Missoula, Montana, January 27, 2017 – Blackfoot was the corporate sponsor for the 11th annual ‘Project Homeless Connect’ event held at the Missoula County Fairgrounds today. The one- day event is an initiative of Missoula’s At-Risk Housing Coalition, coordinated by United Way of Missoula County. It was developed to provide basic needs to those community members who need a helping hand. Susan Hay Patrick, CEO of United Way of Missoula County thanked Blackfoot for their sponsorship. “I’m grateful for the partnership we have with Blackfoot and for their unwavering commitment toward supporting our community. Their generosity allows us to further our mission to improve education, income and health for all.”
In 2015, Blackfoot received United Way of Missoula County’s ‘Community Spirit Award’ at the organization’s annual meeting. The award is presented annually to a company that demonstrates strong community involvement and individual and corporate support for United Way.
