The Gazette will have an expanded Opinion section on Christmas Day to share letters of thanks from our region's nonprofit agencies. Continuing a popular holiday feature, The Gazette again invites leaders or designated representatives of nonprofits to write letters recognizing their donors, volunteers or sponsors for support in the past year. Letters are welcome from charitable human service, health care, educational and cultural organizations that serve Montana or Wyoming.
Letters must be less than 250 words. Include the author's name, address and daytime phone number (only the name and city will be printed). Space isn't available to thank supporters by name. Instead, consider thanking all donors, sponsors and volunteers, and briefly remind readers of the work that your organization does for its community. Letters may include contact information for readers who want to learn more about the organization.
The Christmas thanks letters must be received by noon on Dec. 18 to be published on Christmas Day.
Email letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail to Pat Bellinghausen, The Billings Gazette, P.O. Box 36300, Billings, MT 59107; or fax to 406-657-1208. Please type "Christmas thanks" in the email subject line.
