Red Cross Of MT Helps With Relief Efforts In Philippines

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

As the death toll of the typhoon in the Philippines rises to at least 10,000 people, the American Red Cross of Montana is joining relief efforts.

The organization opened a line to call for those trying to locate any loved ones they have in the Philippines. That number is 800-272-2688.

The organization is also helping to plan when and how to send more people from the U.S. abroad. American Red Cross of Montana is also accepting donations for those who have lost their homes.

"Victims of the typhoon many have lost absolutely everything, and so they will need help to rebuild their lives, but in short term, they will need help from the Red Cross and other organizations to have shelter food and clothing," said Anna Fernandez Gevaert.

To make a donation you can go to the American Red Cross website, or send it to American Red Cross of Montana at 1300 28th Street South Great Falls, MT 59405. You can also call them for more information at 1-800-ARC-MONT (800-272-6668).
