The Whitefish Community Foundation annual Great Fish Community Challenge has STARTED! About 40% of the families that apply for our Best Beginnings Scholarship for childcare do not qualify. Many times this is because they are barely over income, which means some are still struggling to get by. We use most of the funds we receive during the Great Fish Community Challenge specifically to pay for scholarships for these families. We work closely with places like Kalispell Parks and Recreation and Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country to make sure the families that need it most, get it first. This year we gave out almost 40 scholarships so that kids were able to receive care during the summer, and parents were able to work. We are hoping to do so much more next year, so every donation you make, really makes a difference in a child’s life.healthy.
