For seven years, Big Sky Western Bank (BSWB) had generously donated space in the basement of the downtown location for Adopt A Sox’s activities. However, this was one of several
BSWB locations that will no longer be used by Glacier Bank, the parent organization of BSWB, as a result of their purchase of First Security Bank.
While AAS was not asked to relocate, our Board chose to find another location for our activities. As of May 20, 2018, AAS is settled into our new location in Belgrade at 144 Skyway Blvd., Unit B. Our new facility
is close to the airport, on the ground floor, and has two large roll-up doors which will be quite useful in loading boxes.
The Adopt A Sox team cannot thank Big Sky Western Bank enough for their generosity with their donation of space. Without them AAS would not be what it is today.
We are excited about our new donated space which offers plenty of parking and more space. If you would like to see our new facility, please call to arrange an appointment.
Christmas Boxes for Active Local Military
Adopt A Sox’s (AAS) mission is to recognize and thank our actively serving Montana service men and women at Christmas, to show them that their own communities think of them and
appreciate their sacrifices. To do this, we invite the community to donate a wide range of specific useful items, tasty treats, and fun distractions.
The Impact of Our Gifts
We regularly receive letters from commanding officers of our Montana units sharing their experience with how the men and women they lead are emotionally refreshed by this gesture from
the community. Individual soldiers write letters expressing their appreciation of the feel of home in Montana that the gifts provide. We also get visits at events from soldiers once they’ve returned home who
humble us with their thanks, when it is they to whom we all owe our thanks. Click on the image of the letter for an example of what we receive and read other letters.
We also solicit monetary donations to help with shipping costs, for each of these big boxes costs up to $50 to ship! For troops not deployed, we raise money to include a gift card
from a local grocery store. Donations of money can be made at any First Security Bank, or by mail to Adopt A Sox, P.O.Box 6113, Bozeman, MT 59771-6113. Adopt A Sox is a 501(c)(3), which means that your donation is
tax deductible. Check with your tax professional to determine how this affects your specific situation.
Cash4Candy from Sayre Orthodontics
Sayre Orthodontics has been a
supporter of Adopt A Sox for several years with their Cash 4 Candy program. Children enjoy Halloween by going out and trick or treating. Each child brings their
“loot” to Sayre Orthodontics who gives them $2 per pound of candy donated, an additional $2 per pound goes to the child's school, and all the candy is donated to Adopt A Sox. In , over 750 pounds of candy was donated. Definitely a win/win for all concerned!
