Thanks from Red Cross

When times are tough, Montanans rise to the challenge. That’s what we do.

 

And that’s been the case during a difficult wildfire season that has touched all corners of our state. Neighbors have helped neighbors, donating hay, offering up a safe place to stay and a warm meal.

 

They’ve also opened their pocketbooks, donating thousands to Montana Red Cross. This allowed us to provide food, shelter and comfort to those who have been forced to evacuate their homes, sometimes with little warning. We have opened 16 shelters since July, and our Red Cross volunteers worked around the clock to ensure everyone facing these evacuations was safe and comfortable.

 

Recently, the Red Cross deployed an emergency response vehicle stocked with food, water, blankets and hygiene kits to travel around the Seeley Lake and Ovando area to ensure the evacuees’ needs were met.

 

And it’s not just those in our own backyard who Montanans have rallied to support. We also helped those hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey, donating thousands more to Red Cross relief efforts in Texas and Louisiana.

 

We can’t thank our donors and volunteers enough for their generosity, felt by so many here at home and across the country. You are truly making a difference.

 

If you too would like to donate to the Red Cross of Montana visit redcross.org/montana, call 800-272-6668 or send a check to American Red Cross of Montana, 1300 28th St. S., Great Falls MT 59405.
