The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services team has been working in Ravalli and Missoula counties, and the nearby areas devastated by the Lolo Peak wildfire.
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 percent of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.
There are three ways to contribute to The Salvation Army relief and restoration efforts for the wildfires:
1. Online at: Missoula.SalvationArmy.org – designate gift for ‘Montana Wildfires’
2. By phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY – designate gift for ‘Montana Wildfires’
3. By mail: Send a check, marked ‘Montana Wildfires’ to The Salvation Army, Northwest Divisional Headquarters, 111 Queen Anne Ave. N #300, Seattle, WA, 98109.
