Montanans now battle wildfires on an ongoing basis. The XXXXX fires gutted dozens of homes and businesses in Southwest Montana. Firefighters have been battling blazes across the state since XXXXX. People from rural communities have less access to support, which means they also tend to bear the brunt of the long-term impact. Local nonprofits also tend to be overlooked and underfunded.
All donations to this fund will support wildfire relief efforts in the West Yellowstone Area. Initially, the fund helps meet survivors' immediate needs for shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts.
