August 19, 2020 | View PDF
Northeast MT RSVP volunteer program has received two separate funding donations to help support their efforts responding to COVID relief and to support their work with area veterans. In May, Lance Jackson, Montana-Dakota Utilities (MDU) reached out to RSVP program staff with a funding opportunity to support RSVP's efforts in responding to volunteer needs that were misplaced due to the shutdown and provide supplies to essential workers. In a separate funding opportunity, the RSVP program staff presented a proposal to the Sidney Elks Lodge to support a Richland County Day of Service Event. The event would be open to the public with specific services aimed at connecting with veterans. Since that time, the event has been postponed until next spring. The Sidney Elks Lodge reached back out to program staff to announce funding support for the programs ongoing efforts in supporting veterans. In July, Lee Armstrong, Sidney Elks Exalted Ruler presented the RSVP program with funding. Northeast MT RSVP is grateful for the support of community members and the organizations they represent, taking care of each other and making a difference is what moves communities forward.
