Thursday Nov. 16th, 2023

The two-week Can the Griz competition is in its final days. However, there’s still plenty of time for our community to step up with last minute donations of food or money to help ensure Bobcat fans once again win this time-honored competition that helps restock the shelves at our Gallatin Valley Food Bank just in time for the holidays.

HRDC’s Gallatin Valley Food Bank still needs turkeys to meet demand for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Currently the food bank has received just 25% of the total turkeys needed for their annual Thanksgiving Food Box Distribution. Please help us spread the word.

When: ​​Last day to donate for the Can the Griz competition is Friday, Nov. 17th.

Where: ​Convenient donation stations are set up all over town. Details can be found HERE.
