Please sign up for

News from Marty Ostermiller:
Please check-out the website above.  I am really hoping that I can inspire you to join me in signing up to volunteer.  This is an event that my father(Ron Ostermiller) and I are kicking off this year and hope to establish it as an annual event in the community.  Our eventual goal is to create an infrastructure that can be used across several communities.  It is based on a similar event in Butte that has been going on annually for the past twenty years.  Last year, they raised over 130,000 pounds of food and $30,000 dollars in donations.

Picture tromping around our neighborhoods in the snow going from door to door with a group of friends and family, collecting food for families in need.  It is a precious opportunity for all of us to volunteer for one brief morning during the holidays, be outside, get some exercise, and have fun making a difference in this community.  We are setting an ambitious goal of mobilizing 500+ volunteers to collect over 100,000 pounds of food in this first year of the food drive in Bozeman and Belgrade.  I am really optimistic that we can reach these goals, but we need your help.

Please, please sign up and spread the word.  If you are willing to SHARE this with your friends on Facebook and help us generate enthusiasm that way, I have included instructions below.

Thanks, Marty Ostermiller
Thank you for exploring the possibility of volunteering for our Holiday Food drive in December.  Invite your family and friends to join you on a crisp December day of giving back to your community.  Your efforts will go far to help those in our community in need during the winter months.

You can choose to sign-up to either lead a team or join a team.  Our recommended team size is five or more participants.  The ideal team configuration is to have four or more members walking the streets collecting food and a vehicle and driver available to collect food from the volunteers.

We will communicate event information via email and this website in the weeks leading up to the event.

- Act as our principal point of contact for your team
- Ensure that your team has covered all of the houses in your area
