The Salvation Army Responding To Needs Of Those Affected By Western Montana Wildfires
The Salvation Army is providing vouchers to families impacted by the wildfires for gasoline, hotels, and other needs. For more information, call 406-210-1453.
How to Help
The most critical need right now is for monetary donations. The best way to help during any disaster, large or small, is often to make a financial contribution. Cash donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors without incurring many of the costs associated with sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods. Salvation Army disaster services are funded entirely by donors, and The Salvation Army uses 100% of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.

Donations of Tangible Items
At the request of the county, The Salvation Army is sorting, organizing, and planning distribution of the many tangible items that have been donated to date. At this time, donations of additional tangible items are being discouraged, due to storage and space requirements. Donors who have items for future donation should call 406-210-1453.
"There has been a generous outpouring of items from the general public,"; said Captain Lawler. "But, at this time, storage of these items is a challenge. The families who need these donations aren't ready for them yet they'll need these items after they find stable, long-term housing.
