The Northern Lights Community Fund is proud to announce the awarding of its April grants to Big Sky Youth Empowerment, Thrive and Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter. $1,000 will be split among the three organizations to help fund their missions.
“We understand that healthy communities start with healthy kids,” Mike Garcia, owner of Northern Lights, said recently. “Whether it's after-school programs, healthy activities on the weekend or supporting parents with the sometimes difficult task of parenting, Northern Lights is committed to fostering an environment where children thrive.”
The Community Fund grants will go toward specific projects within each organization. Heart of the Valley Executive Director, Phil Rogers stated “the shelter is in desperate need of support for supplies for our campers at Pets Pal Summer Camp to use during their week-long day camps. Our summer day camp is popular with children aged six to twelve, but it’s costly for us to run. When Northern Lights stepped up to fill that need we were thrilled!”
Northern Lights Trading Company established their Community Fund with the goal of clearly demonstrating the direct and positive effects of a consumer's local spending on the Bozeman community. They have committed to donating $1,000 per month to a selection of conservation and human interest organizations that help make Montana a great place to live and recreate.
