Many people have asked how they can help the firefighting efforts across Montana, or donate to help the people affected by the fires.
According to kpax.com:
Diane Wright, executive director of the Montana chapter of the American Red Cross, wants people to know how to specifically donate money to the State’s wildfire relief effort, and NOT to the general disaster fund, which could put their money toward Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Wright says that best way to donate to the Montana Red Cross wildfire relief effort is by sending a check to the Great Falls headquarters and writing “Montana Wildfires” in the memo line.
If people want to donate online…they must first select the local chapter that they want their money to go to, and then very shortly after call the Great Falls office to verbally request that their donation goes to Montana wildfire relief efforts.
Wright said, “If you’d like for your money to stay here in Montana then you can select the option of a local chapter, and that money will stay here in Montana. If you want your money to be specifically used for Montana wildfires then we ask that you just call us and let us know, or if you’re sending in a check to our Great Falls location office, then you just write on your memo line ‘Montana wildfire.’”
You can also contact your nearest municipal or volunteer fire department, as they are best able to determine what resources are needed in your area.
