Mackenzie River Pizza Awards Jadyn Fred Foundation with Check

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Today the Jadyn Fred Foundation, a Missoula non-profit organization, received a check for just under $3700 from MacKenzie River Pizza.

This year is the restaurant's 20th anniversary. They celebrated by donating $20,000 to split between seven different non-profit organizations around the state.

Each branch of the restaurant nominated a local organization and it was up to the customers of the restaurant to decided how the money would be split.

The Jadyn Fred Foundation received the second most votes and came away with 16 percent of the money.

"Just to see how many people got behind our organization, whether it was online or through the restaurants, we were just overjoyed to receive this check knowing it will go to help families," Fred said.

The Jadyn Fred Foundation has helped about 400 Montana families since it started in 2001.

The other non-profit organizations around Montana are: Ryan United for Helena, Mariah's Challenge for Butte, Flathead Community Health Center for Kalispell, Eagle Mount Great Falls for Great Falls, Chase Hawks Memorial Association for Billings and Big Sky Youth Empowerment for Bozeman.
