Gallatin Rest Home Auxiliary Moves Christmas Fundraiser Online

For immediate release: November 10, 2020

This time of year when the Gallatin Rest Home Auxiliary volunteers are usually scampering through the Rest Home preparing for our annual Christmas bazaar. But this year is very different.

Our Gallatin Rest Home residents are staying safe inside due to COVID-19. Families and volunteers aren’t able to visit this year, and the Auxiliary isn’t able to open the doors for the bazaar.

What can be done? The Gallatin Rest Home Auxiliary is having a virtual “Vision of Sugarplums” Holiday Celebration Fundraiser! We’re asking you to think of the residents and help the staff provide the merriment and traditions of a normal Christmas. Money raised will be used throughout the year, too.

Since 1980, the Auxiliary has sponsored many of the activities residents enjoy – from visiting, crafts, music, movement, needlework, all kinds of art activities, reading, gardening, the aviary and fish tank, picnics, internet and WiFi, companionship, holiday programming, and much more.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Gallatin Rest Home Auxiliary in time for the holiday season. Any amount is most welcome. With your help, we can brighten the days ahead.

You can donate online on GoFundMe or send a check to the Gallatin Rest Home Auxiliary, 1221 W. Durston Rd., Bozeman, MT 59715.
