BILLINGS -

The Treasure State is ready to pitch in to help those in need in Oklahoma.

Montana Red Cross Disaster Director Colleen Tone said, in a statement, that they are watching the situation closely, and their team members are ready to go to Oklahoma, if they are needed. According to the same statement, Red Cross officials in Oklahoma have already deployed almost 30 response vehicles to hand out food and relief supplies, as well as setting up six shelters.

Here in Billings, there are a couple of things to do to help out the victims. Those wanting to help out can call 1-800-ARC-MONT (1-800-272-6668) to donate money to the Red Cross, or text the word "REDCROSS" to 90999 to donate $10 per text.

In addition, heights frozen yogurt store Cherry Berry announced they are donating 10% of their sales Tuesday to the cause.
