BOARD PRESIDENT
My name is Glen and I got involved with Helping Hands back in 2007. Volunteering for our group means a lot to me. It makes me feel good knowing that we are helping families and helping support the community. When I am not volunteering, I spend my time running a small business and enjoying everything that Western Montana has to offer!

VICE PRESIDENT
Hello! I am Rachele: Formerly Board President, I have been a voting member since 2014. I am with Montana Child and Family Services. I find sanctuary in my backyard garden with my husband and our critters, and in the mountains of nearby Petty Creek. Born in Missoula, I’ve lived in Alberton for 11 years now and am happy to call this charming little mountain town, my home.
