Great Falls car dealership helps Rescue Mission with gifts for kids

GREAT FALLS – The Great Falls Rescue Mission has been busy all month getting ready for Christmas. They also receive a final gift just before the holidays to help spread joy and joy among the children staying at the Mission.

The holiday season is always busy and hectic for the rescue mission, but director Jim McCormick says that’s how they like it. They cook a big ham dinner for over 200 people, but also took care of wrapping gifts for the children and their families.

“We have many different kinds of toys and the like and gifts for kids and teens. Last week we had volunteers in the basement all week wrapping the presents for each of the families and the governor was also here to do 12 days of volunteering and stopped by and spent time with us. We’ve been blessed with all kinds of things, ”McCormick said. “We couldn’t do this without the love and support of the residents and organizations of Great Falls and Central Montana, and we simply thank each of you for all the support you have given throughout the year. year.

There are plenty of gifts waiting to be opened for the mission, and Lithia Chrysler wanted to make sure the kids had one more that they can use for a long time – new shoes. Over 60 pairs of shoes were donated and Lithia was able to purchase them without any problem. They put money aside for every vehicle bought this year and used Christmas money to give gifts to the children.

General Manager Brian Belderrain said it was a good opportunity to empower and educate the community about the current situation as well.

“We hope this will raise awareness of the needs of this community. This year has doubled for our shoe donation, the need for the Youth Alliance has doubled, so this need continues to grow. It is difficult for them to meet their needs, ”said Belderrain. “Giving is the best reward. It really is. Especially for the kids because I think it’s great that we can give them a little blessing and maybe we can get the community to come and give more.

Even after Christmas, the rescue mission will accept donations. You can visit their website for more information.
