Montana Rescue Mission: Volunteers helped move merchandise to other locations after flooding

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The basement at the Montana Rescue Mission, Men's Shelter, flooded over the weekend. But the organization still is knee deep in the aftermath and uncertain insurance will cover the cost.

This morning, MRM rounded up dozens of volunteers to help move the salvaged merchandise to other locations.

MRM Public Relation's Director, Denise Smith, says it's because the water main that broke was an outside source and not something that directly broke inside.

The water is cleared out, but staffers at MRM are still trying to keep their heads afloat as they move out items and wonder: What's next?

It's moving day for the Men's Shelter and dozens came to lend a hand. Even high school students and football players from Skyview helped. 

Jamie DeLao was among the dozens, and she came on her off day to help. 

"I mean, it doesn't take much. This is easy stuff. We were hauling furniture out earlier today, but I mean, it's easy. It might take you all day, but I mean at the end of the day you're going to feel good about it," she said.

This Saturday, August 6th, starting bright and early at 8 a.m., the MRM will be having a huge sale at its other locations. Its West End Bargain Center is located at 1233 24th St. W. The Montana Rescue Mission, Women's and Children's Shelter is at 2520 1st. Ave. N.

MRM is asking for the public's help. The dining room is set up, but the shelter still cannot cook anything.

Staffers are looking for people to provide hot and ready to serve meals. The mission serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, feeding more than 100 people each meal.
