Want to help Butte’s less fortunate during the holidays? Consider the Mining City Christmas and Holiday Giving Program.
How you can help:
• Donate: Action Inc.’s Mining City Christmas and Holiday Giving Program is solely dependent on the generosity of donations from our community. The agency does not receive government funds for this program nor does it use any donations for program costs. All monies received go directly to help families in need. Donations are tax deductible.
• Adopt-A-Family: By adopting one of the families, a group or individual agrees to buy food and gifts or only gifts for the family for Christmas. Families who are adopted are chosen from the giving tree at Action Inc. The giving tree contains a wish list of the family who is needing help this holiday season.
Applications and adoptions are accepted at Action Inc., 25 W. Silver St., Butte, MT 59701.
