Every year during the holiday season we are reminded of how generously the Helena community helps the children of our Helena schools with their compassion, kindness and financial support! Angel Fund is a non-profit making a difference for children in need. Angel Fund started 32 years ago at a school helping a few students with winter coats and field trip fees. Due to Covid-19, we predict that nearly 1,000 students will need help purchasing school clothes, shoes, winter outerwear, supplies and various other school items needed to be successful. in class in person and virtually! We are honored to be part of their success story every year to change lives for the better! Because of your generosity and faith in the work of Angels, the human spirit continues to be healthy and strong among our families facing uncertainty and hardship.
Angel Fund also awards Montana Post-Secondary Scholarships to seniors eligible for Access to Success, CHS, HHS, and PAL based on financial need, academic achievement, and a ‘give it back’ commitment. With our generous sponsors, Angel Fund awarded 33 alumni a Montana scholarship of $ 1,000 to $ 2,000 last fall so they could start a new chapter in higher education towards a better future!
“Stuff the Bus”, our annual school supply drive coordinated by Angel Fund, has been reinvented again this summer! In the past, local churches, businesses, government agencies and citizens of Helena have generously donated to help local children with a new backpack full of supplies! Yes, we are not only helping the children of Helena, but also the students of the small school districts surrounding Helena. Due to Covid, we continued to ask the Helena community to donate cash instead of supplies for our 1,400 students who needed school supplies this fall. We have reached our goal of $ 40,000 to be distributed to all of our schools so that they can purchase school supplies in bulk for their students.
Angel Fund and Helena Police Department team up for “Running for Montana’s Future Program”. Resource officers provide appropriate athletic shoes to students in need. Since its debut in 2010, more than 800 pairs of shoes have been purchased! A “win-win” project promoting a healthy lifestyle!
