    Members of Great Falls Friends and Neighbors (GFFN) Philanthropy Committee presented a donation check for $5,500 on Jan. 26 to Joe Meyer, Executive Director & CEO of Shelter House, and Nurjan Ahmedova, Director of Development, to support the organization's 24-hour emergency shelter, Artemis House for domestic and sexual violence victims, stalking, and human trafficking.

    June Kelly, Vice-President of GFFN Philanthropy, said the 14 women in the group raised funds for the donation through two programs they held in 2020, the Harvest Tea and sales of the Official 2020 White House Christmas Ornament. With income predicted to be reduced due to the coronavirus's impact, members expanded advertising and sale of the ornaments to GFFN's website and Facebook page, NextDoor, and businesses outside Great Falls.
