What Is the Mountain of Giving program?
The Mountain of Giving is a community-wide effort to raise money and donations of new toys for children in need at the holidays, sponsored, organized, and coordinated by the Mountain Broadcasting Foundation (a 501c3). For almost two decades we have been privileged to use our Mountain of Giving program to make sure children in need experience the joy of the holidays.
Our Partner agencies put Christmas wishes on individual tags which are distributed to generous local businesses and organizations and displayed on Christmas trees.
Donors take a tag, shop for a gift, and bring the gift and tag back to the same tree or to the Mountain Broadcasting office. Our Mountain Broadcasting staff picks up those gifts and delivers them to our Partner agencies to distribute to the children and their families.
You can take a tag off one of our Mountain of Giving Trees — shop for the item and return the tag and item to the store or business where you got it, OR drop it off at one of our locations by Dec. 17th, 2019;
Mountain Broadcasting World Headquarters, 725 Strand, (406-542-1025)
Southgate Mall, Mountain of Giving Box at Guest Services
No Time To Shop?
No problem — We will send our volunteer elves out to shop for you!
