Posted: Updated:

Entrepreneurs acting in the U.S.

It is called the Enactus Club, a worldwide organization for the worlds next entrepreneurs and the club from Carroll College is working towards ending local hunger partnering with the Helena Food Share and Campbell's Soup for a food drive called "Let's Can Hunger".

"It is a immediate and long term hunger relief is what we are doing and so Enactus wrote in for a grant to get through Campbell's for $300 to do advertising for the Helena Food Share but also do entrepreneur projects." says Allie Reynolds a member of Enactus.

Enactus is working on a goal of obtaining 5,000 lbs. of food by February for the Helena Food Share with the "Let's Can Hunger" drive, which they are going to be setting up several locations for food donations throughout the next few months, starting with the Parade of Lights in Downtown Helena on Friday night and then another large drive in December.

"We are going to have one more organized food share donation drop off which is going to be at Vans the 13th and 14th of December, but then we are also going to be at a whole bunch of Carroll games, and we are getting the high schools Helena High and Capital High to do a competition between each other who can raise the most food." continued Reynolds. 

If Enactus is able to achieve their goal of the 5,000 lbs. they are taking the outlined plan of how they obtained their goal and presenting it at a national competition to be ranked by several large companies.

"April is competition in Cincinnati and what they do is it is a whole panel of head of corporations that will be judging each schools project and from nationals you can go to the world competition." 

Carroll College's Enactus is on a mission to reach their goal of 5,000 lbs. of food but are also taking cash donations with equal a dollar a pound.

    Mills Canyon burn out planned for Tuesday

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
