>>> Many communities in Montana have been hit hard by flooding. Several agencies are working to assist people who have been displaced or affected by the floods.
Financial contributions to help the Montana Red Cross manage flooding and other disasters statewide can be made by calling 1-800-ARC-MONT (800-272-6668). You can also send checks made checks payable to "Montana Red Cross" and send them to: 1300 28th Street South, Third Floor, Great Falls, MT 59405
People who would like to volunteer can go to VolunteerMatch.org and look for Red Cross opportunities in their community as they come available.
Volunteer opportunities are also available through the United Way at YouCanVolunteer.org.
