D.A. Davidson & Co. and
Allegiance Benefit Plan Management, Inc. have partnered to challenge all
Missoula area businesses to donate $500 to the Montana Wounded Warriors Fund.The campaign is underway and will continue through Tuesday, March 4th with a celebration at Draught Works.
Montana Wounded Warriors was
formed to provide wounded Montana Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars
with high-quality hunting and fishing opportunities in the state of
Montana. The goal of $20,000 will be
used towards funding these trips
through professional outfitters with high quality food and lodging. Many people
would volunteer to provide a place for our participants to fish and hunt, but
many of our Veterans have special needs that professional outfitters are better suited to accommodate.
While D.A. Davidson and
Allegiance have challenged businesses in our area, all donations large and
small are welcome and appreciated. The entire community is encouraged to
participate in any way possible.
Companies that wish to rise to the challenge can do so by
making checks payable to Montana Wounded Warriors and sent
Montana Wounded Warriors –
C/O First Security Bank of Missoula
PO Box 4506
Missoula, Montana 59806
Checks may also be
presented at the Montana Wounded Warriors Missoula Challenge Fundraising Event
being held at Draught Works on March 4 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm. All businesses
meeting the challenge will be recognized at the fund raising event.
100% of funds raised will stay right here in Montana!!
Montana Wounded Warriors is
a not-for-profit organization lead by a five member all-volunteer board. This allows them to maximize the use of
donations to serve our Montana Veterans. This in contrast with other organizations who
may serve Veterans in some capacity, but whose budget is primarily used to
cover fundraising and other administrative costs, there are no paid staff at
Montana Wounded Warriors. They are based
in Columbia Falls Montana, near Glacier. For more information visit: http://montanawoundedwarriors.org/
