You may have heard that last month a boiler at the shelter broke down. This is a $4,100 repair. Luke Lautaret, a well known musician in the area, organized a fundraiser "jam" with nearly 50 local musicians in attendance to raise money for this expense
The Kalispell NBC affiliate KCFW did an article about the event. You can view the article here:
The Kalispell ABC FOX news will air an article about the fundraising effort later today, where you can see the Samaritan House and maybe even the actual boiler itself. Also, watch for more information in the Daily InterLake on Saturday, December 7th.
A gentleman has stepped forward offering to match any funds raised towards this expense. This very generous offer expires Monday morning December 9th.
Would you help spread the word, donate or even forward this email to someone that may be able to help?
