Billings, Montana – The Montana Rescue Mission (MRM) is getting ready to protect their residents from the cold as bad weather is predicted for this week.

Matt Lundgren, who is in charge of MRM, said that they have helped an average of more than 250 people every single night over the past week.

Because there are so many more people moving in, MRM needs more warm clothes than usual to keep everyone safe and warm.

“To gear up for the upcoming storm, we have asked the public to donate gloves, socks and boots, and winter jackets for adults. That always really helps us as we give away literally dozens a day to people that come in off the street,” explained Lundgren.

Even though there are a lot of new people moving in, MRM is still open to anyone who needs a place to stay, especially during the snowstorm next week.

“We are focusing on this storm coming, potentially a blizzard this next week and if there’s somebody in Billings that is out on the streets, please come in. We have a place for you, we have a place so that you can stay warm and dry. We can give you some warm clothes. We are here to serve you, that’s why we exist,” emphasized Lundgren.

MRM accepts both in-person and online donations from people who want to help out.
