- My Student in Need to Receive $25,000 From General Distributing!
Posted: Tuesday, December 03, 2013
General Distributing Company, a family owned business that has been serving Montana since 1948, will present a check for $25,000 to My Student in Need on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at Noon. The presentation will highlight the pre-opening celebration of My Neighbor in Need/My Student in Need’s new location at 525 Central Ave, inside Times Square, Downtown Great Falls. “There are not enough ways to say Thank You for this amazing show of support,” said Dave Snuggs, Founder My Neighbor in Need/My Student in Need.
“General Distributing is pleased to partner with such a worthy organization in our community. General Distributing Company and our employees have been blessed and honored to be part of the community for 65 years. Education of our young people is vitally important and it is hard to get a good education when you are cold, hungry or both. We are humbled and honored to support My Student in Need. It is because of our employees that this is even possible.” said Glenn Bliss, President of General Distributing.
- My Student In Need Launches
Posted: Friday, September 27, 2013
Today we launched a new website called www.mystudentinneed.org. Our new website is tuned towards helping our area students in need. It works in a way similar to My Neighbor In Need except for that the only person who will ever know the name of the student in need is the teacher or school admin person who submitted the request. Also our donors get to play a more active role in the donation process. Check out our new www.mystudentinneed.org website for more details.
- www.myneighborinneed.org Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary
Posted: Sunday, March 23, 2014
“This is a day to celebrate! Today we celebrate kindness! Today we celebrate the generosity of strangers! And today, we once again demonstrate that it does not take a lot to do a lot,” Snuggs said. “What started out as the simple idea of anonymous giving has grown into a movement encompassing other social services needed by members of the community including www.mystudentinneed.org, the Pet Food Pantry and the Give What You Can Community Thrift Store.”
My Neighbor in Need, a non-profit organization, based in Great Falls Montana, has satellite projects in Teton County (operated in partnership with Neighbors Helping Neighbors) and Lewistown, Montana. In addition, My Neighbor in Need is available in Southern Wisconsin through a partnership with Saint Vincent De Paul. My Neighbor in Need provides citizens a way to ask for help from their community and a way for the community to give back.
In two years, My Neighbor in Need has received over 3,400 requests for help and has fulfilled over 2,300 needs with almost 2,100 fulfilled in Cascade County Montana alone. “Although the website has been instrumental in connecting those in need with those willing to help, without the community embracing the concept My Neighbor in Need would simply be a website. I want to thank our sponsors, community partners, volunteers and most of all the caring individuals and organizations who every day wake up and make the choice to help a neighbors in need. Their compassion and dedication is without measure,” Snuggs said.
