KALISPELL - The State of Emergency in Browning, East Glacier and Heart Butte has people literally housebound with snow drifts, many are without basic needs like heat and food.
Communities across Montana are coming together to shovel out houses, deliver provisions and help in any way needed as even more storms expected to hit the area.
There's a tremendous need for food and provisions and especially diapers and a group of Flathead Rotarians delivered a pallet of baby formula last Thursday. They also arrived with a trailer, log splitter and supplies and helped out with processing wood on Tuesday.
Kalispell Rotary Club president Pierre Kaptanian says they plan to have a food drive on Thursday drop off the donations at the United Methodist Church in Columbia Falls.
"Contacting the United Methodist Church in Columbia Falls is a great way to be involved because they have coordinated efforts with the United Methodist Church in Browning. They seem to have a good pulse on what's going on. If you can offer assistance. They are talking about doing several log loads in the future and delivery of food and grocery items," Kaptanian said.
United Methodist Church in Columbia Falls will be sending another load of supplies on Friday and are collecting food, diapers, baby formula and donations. If you would have an extra helping hand there is plenty to do as well -- chainsaw operators, wood splitters and snow shovels are needed.
