Help UM Can the MSU Bobcats Again This Year!

Help Clearwater Credit Union and the Missoula Food Bank fight food insecurity in our community during the 22nd Annual Can the Cats Canned Food Drive. Each year the University of Montana/Missoula community and the MSU/Bozeman community participate in this friendly food drive competition to see who can raise the most food and funds over the two weeks leading up to the Brawl of the Wild football game.

Starting Saturday, November 6, 2021, we’ll be collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations at all Clearwater branch locations during regular business hours through Friday, November 19, 2021.

Missoula and Stevensville donations will count towards the Can the Cats contest and support Missoula Food Bank & Community Center, UM Food Pantry, and Stevensville Pantry Partners.

Food and monetary donations collected from our Butte branch will support the local Butte Emergency Food Bank. While donations in Butte will not count towards the Can The Cats Food Drive Contest total, we invite the Butte community to vote for their Brawl of the Wild team pick – the Griz or Cats – by placing their non-perishable food item/s in the bin for their team of choice!
