2017 Great Fish Community Challenge

I hope this update finds you enjoying everything we love about the Flathead Valley in summer, Flathead Cherries and beautiful August sunsets.  
This summer, Samaritan House continues to be at or near capacity in our attempts to shelter and assist our local homeless neighbors while funding remains tight.  It was well publicized in 2016 the financial difficulties we experienced while losing a much needed federal grant.  One way we are trying to address that gap this year is by participating in the 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge being organized by the Whitefish Community Foundation. 
The 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge is an innovative fundraiser that helps the community donate to their favorite participating nonprofit by providing a matching grant incentive.  The campaign will go until September 15th. 
If you would like to donate online to Samaritan House and help us qualify for a matching grant just go to the 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge, pick Samaritan House and donate.  Pick, Click and Give.  
Or if you would like to mail a donation to Samaritan House then print the Official Donation Form include your donation and mail it to:
Whitefish Community Foundation
Thank You very much for your consideration of Samaritan House.
It is very appreciated.
