How to Help in Hard Times: KYSSMAS for Kids returns in Missoula
Think back to your most memorable Christmas. It likely happened when you were a child, with memories of loved ones, and a favorite toy, usually obtained with surprise, and sacrifice.
For many Western Montana families, our harsh economy is dashing those dreams. Higher prices for everything have put on the pinch all year long. And with higher costs due to winter, Christmas is looking pretty bleak in many Missoula area homes.
That's where the return of the KYSSMAS for Kids auction is going to be welcome news and a chance for you to help raise money for kids in need right here at home. It's a tradition that's raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for years, thanks to your caring and generosity.
