April Volunteer Opportunities in Bozeman
Posted On: Apr 05, 2017
Selling real estate allows us to meet a lot of people and discover a lot about the Bozeman community. These are some of the volunteer opportunities we've heard about or participated in that we think are great! Find something you're interested in, and consider giving back. Whether that is just one day or 6 months, let's work together to make the Gallatin Valley a great community!
Raise a pint for mountain bike trails with SWMMBA (Southwest Montana Mountain Bike Association/The Dirt Concern) at MAP brewing! On April 20th from 4-8, there will be an awesome event called Ales for Trails where with a purchase of a $20 ticket you can get a limited edition pint glass filled with your favorite beer, a silent raffle ticket and the rest goes to help with the trails!
Kitty Cuddle at Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter. This is a service activity you can bring your kids ages 6-15 to that they will love!
Get on the emergency call list for The Community Cafe and help with dinner service! The Community Cafe serves dinner every night and needs helping hands from 4:30-7:30 pm! Around the holidays it is easier to get people to volunteer, but as we near summer, they are having more gaps in coverage so contact Elizabeth Dillon at firstname.lastname@example.org to help!
Another awesome cooking opportunity is Family Cooking Nights with Gallatin Valley Farm to School. On April 20th and 27th from 4:30-7:30, parents and students will learn how to cook a healthy meal. Volunteers are needed for set up, assisting families, and leading conversation about the importance of the local food system. To volunteer, sign up here.
Great! The Community Cafe needs a Distance Kidspack Driver for the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 8am-3pm. Deliver KidsPack bags to more remote elementary schools in Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson Counties. This monthly run provides schools with a four weeks supply of KidsPack bags!
6. i don't have a lot of time...
That’s okay! The Community Cafe is looking for the following items! If you have something to donate, you can bring it to The Gallatin Valley Food Bank between 8am-5pm or by APPOINTMENT at The Community Cafe (302 N. 7th Ave)
Kitchen Wish List:
Metal Hotel Pans – 2-6 inches deep
Industrial Heat Resistant Rubber Spatula’s

9. supporting families with kids with cancer
The Bozeman 3 was started to help the families of three young children, all from Bozeman, Montana, fighting cancer in Seattle, Washington. It now has 3 main purposes:
1. Financially support Gallatin County families whose child has received a cancer diagnosis.
2. Provide peer support by connecting Gallatin County families whose children have, or have had cancer.
3. Support pediatric cancer research.
They are currently holding the Coin War at Hawthorne Elementary School. They are hoping other schools will want to host a coin war and have it added to their event calendars for future years (so if you have any connections, please get in touch ! You can contact Val VanAmburg at (406) 599-2311 or Emily Cook at (406) 539-0601). You can help now by donating, sharing the message, and starting the conversation! You can find the post here and here and you can click "share" below it to share it on your Facebook wall!
If you’ve ever participated in a race, you have probably come across a kind soul handing you water, food or medals. Sign up to help Sat April 22nd for the race “Back From Bridger” at Bridger Bowl! (Click here to sign up and scroll to the bottom.)
Be a Dog Do-er at Stafford Animal Shelter in Livingston (the only nonprofit animal-care facility in Park County) by helping dogs get the physical and mental exercise they need by taking them for walks, playing fetch, or just spending some quiet one-on-one time with them. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 406-222-1313 or email@example.com
13. helping people with special needs
Eagle Mount is an incredible Bozeman organization that is always looking for people to help with swimming, outdoor adventures, working with horses, and just making friends! If this is something you would be interested in, you can fill out a volunteer application here.
Befrienders is perfect for you! They ask for a minimum of a six month commitment and a minimum of one hour per week visiting with your senior! It's an awesome opportunity to get to know someone and their story! Find out more here!
As you take out your hoes and spades, consider spending a bit less time in your garden and using that time to educate elementary-aged kids about gardening, science, sustainability and food-related activities! The Bozone Ozone Bus mobile greenhouse (BOB) will be traveling to different elementary schools and volunteers are needed to help lead pre-planned activities. They need volunteers starting now to help care for the plants on the mobile greenhouse! Contact Gallatin Valley Farm to School BOB Coordinator, Ali Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer and in the email, please include your availability in April through August!
