MHA Holds Furniture Drive For Displaced Residents

MISSOULA -

The Missoula Housing Authority is trying to get furniture donated for the residents who lost their homes in the Vantage Villa fire last month.

The drive started on Tuesday in the llama barn at the fairgrounds.

The Missoula Housing Authority found homes for more than half the residents of the 41 units damaged by arson last month.

MHA officials said now those residents need furniture, especially beds.

"You know, it's a start," said MHA Board Member Emily Bentley. "It's not everything, but hopefully it's enough to make residents feel less overwhelmed, you know, their starting over so we're trying to help."

The drive starts up again Wednesday morning at 8 AM through 10 AM. Any furniture is accepted.
