Milk River, Inc. is a 501 C 3 non-profit agency that has been in the Glasgow, MT community since 1976, and is guided by a volunteer board of directors locally. Milk River's mission is to support adults with developmental disabilities in both residential setting and work experience settings. Their major goals are to integrate these people supported by their organization into the community, and ensure that they have the best quality of life possible.

FedEx team members from Glasgow, MT filled the Purple Tote Bags with craft supplies. The people that Milk River serves will use these crafts to enhance their lives by utilizing them in art therapy, building skills, providing leisure time activities, and sharing their finished craft products with family and friends. These crafts will provide the people of Milk River with a sense of pride and accomplishment!

The Purple Tote Bags enhanced the lives of the people of Milk River in many ways. With the help of the supplies and the added funds provided by the team, this gave the residents many options that they would not have had before including more time to learn new skills, learning to work with others as a team, and to bring enjoyment to their lives. Items donated by FedEx staff and others included holiday craft kits, glue, pens, crayons, candy sprinkles, colored paper, color books, modeling clay, supply storage boxes, and more. The FedEx team was able to visit and learn more about Milk River and the 42 people that they serve and was happy to help make a difference!
