Whitefish company selling t-shirts for wildfire relief

Posted: Updated:

WHITEFISH - Fire relief donations are pouring in and a small business in Whitefish is making a big impact to help their fellow Montanans.

The Montana Shirt Co. is donating the proceeds from its Montana Strong shirt design to those affected by this year's wildfire season.

Dave and Natalie Elliott, who own the company, said they raised $25,000 for Montanans in need in the first four days of the campaign, and they keep raising more.

The Elliotts say people from all over the country have been ordering shirts in support of the relief efforts. On top of that, the $25,000 donation will be matched by the Montana Television Network.

"We really wanted to make sure that the money we donated stayed in Montana," Dave said. "The big reason why we chose the Montana Wildfire Relief Fund is because we saw that the Montana Television Network was going to be matching donations up to $50,000. And so we saw that and thought 'Hey, why don't we put our money, the $25,000, into that fund and hopefully that will be matched and have the opportunity to really help families in need."

The Elliot's #MontanaStrong shirt campaign will continue through September.  You can click here to find more info on where to get a shirt.
