Kiwanis Magazine


Bozeman, Montana, Kiwanian Amber Guth

Finding the right fit

There’s no denying that Bozeman, Montana—nestled in the northern Rocky Mountains—is a destination for world-class fly fishing and snow skiing. Take a walk downtown and you’ll see boutiques, shops selling snowboarding equipment and restaurants bustling with hungry tourists.

On a quieter street one block south of Main Street is an unassuming white church with little piles of snow still clinging to the last days of winter. Between cold grey clouds, the sun pops out to warm early morning guests at the door. A young woman greets them with a confident, warm smile.

“Hi, I’m Amber,” she says. All around her, clothing, shoes, boxes and bags  burst from every room and into the hall. “Welcome to the Kiwanis Closet.”

“It started as a clothing drive,” Guth says of her Bozeman Kiwanis Club’s program to help the homeless and needy.

Pick up the October 2014 Kiwanis magazine and read more about the Kiwanis Closet and why Guth is dedicated to serving needy families.
