Billings Toys for Tots is featured on Avitus Group’s Community Segment on Montana Matters. The program serves some 2500 children in Yellowstone County each year. The organization is asking for new, unwrapped toys that can be dropped off at various business locations, including Avitus Group (8th floor of the Wells Fargo building in Downtown Billings). The organization is also looking for volunteers to help set up the toy store November 15th at the Metra Park Expo Center. Families who need to sign up for the program can register by contacting St. Vincent de Paul or Family Service, Inc.
Avitus Group invites viewers to nominate non-profit organizations that make a positive impact on Montana to come on the show.
“Avitus Group makes it a priority to give back to our local communities. There are certainly a large number of non-profit organizations in Montana that strive to make our state the best place to live, work and play, and we want to highlight all that they are doing as well as thank them,” says Avitus Group Senior Vice President of Finance Steve Bentley.
The Community Segment, sponsored by Avitus Group, airs several times each month during the noon news Monday through Friday. The segments also re-air following the 10:00 p.m. news on Sunday. The segments are also placed online on the Montana Matters website page.
“This is such an incredible opportunity to showcase the non-profit organizations in Montana and the people behind them with big hearts who truly care about our state. The community segment has a call to action aspect where we encourage viewers to get involved and volunteer their time and talents. Montana is a giving state, and when we can all give a little, we can help a lot,” says Avitus Group Public Relations Manager & Montana Matters Host Dianne Parker.
