VFW Post #3107 Donates To Montana Hope Project
April 25, 2018
The VFW Post #3107 Auxiliary presented Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Mitch Willett a $200 donation to the Montana Hope Project on April 20.
Every year the auxiliary finds causes to donate to when they have extra funds. This year, the Montana Hope Project was considered due to auxiliary member Sharon Lagerquist's previous relationship with the project. As a result of her work with the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office as well as the Valley County Sheriff's Office, she has been able to see first-hand the assistance these types of funds can make in helping children and their families.
The Montana Hope Project is a non-profit organization funded by tax-deductible charitable contributions. It does not receive tax support and is not associated with any national wish-granting organization. Its goal is to make dreams come true for critically-ill children throughout the state. The conditions the children face normally require medical intervention and are physically, emotionally and financially draining for the children and their families. The Montana Hope Project is a way for children and their families to escape daily life and enjoy life instead of worrying.
Since Willett has been with the Montana Highway Patrol Office, three Valley County area children and their families have participated in the Montana Hope Project. There have been a total of 469 wishes granted since 1984 with seven wishes granted so far this year statewide.
