Governor Steve Bullock today encouraged Montanans across the state to assist Montanans in need suffering from the impacts of severe winter weather across the state. Governor Bullock Tuesday declared a winter storm emergency in Northwestern and Southeastern Montana, including on the Blackfeet, Fort Belknap, and Northern Cheyenne reservations and in Glacier and Golden Valley Counties.
“In Montana we lend our neighbors a helping hand in times of need. Right now Montanans across the state are dealing with the impacts of severe winter storms and snowdrifts. So whether its food, firewood, hay or a small monetary donation, let’s make sure our fellow Montanans stay safe and warm this weekend.”
Governor Bullock has set up a Donations Management website to assist those in need. Montanans can donate through this link: http://www.readyandsafe.mt.gov
Items in greatest need include non-perishable food, firewood, and hay. Cash donations are welcome. Areas in Northern Cheyenne and Blackfeet welcome assistance from area contractors for snow removal.
Organizations listed on the website are verified and are working with Donations Management to provide relief to those who need it here in Montana.
