Getting Ready for ‘The Giveaway’ in Hamilton
After final donations and arrangement of all sorts of items Friday, The Giveaway will be ready for a fast-moving three hours Saturday, December 14, when those in need gather everything from clothes to school supplies to food and Christmas items - absolutely free of charge. Some furniture will be there, too. Denise Echterling of "The Place" Hart to Heart Ministries told KLYQ that her family ministry is supported by a huge number of local folks who want help those who might be having a tough time this winter.
Donations were being accepted Thursday and Friday. The First Interstate Event Center will be divided into different areas - for clothes, school supplies, food, furniture and more. Denise said this is the largest annual Giveaway they've attempted in Hamilton. The doors will open Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and she expects most things to gone by noon. Whatever is left will go to the Ravalli Services Thrift Store. For more information, check their website.
