The Old Saloon of Emigrant, MT hosts Ryan Bingham for Benefit Concert

EMIGRANT, Mont. -- The Old Saloon and Ryan Bingham, acclaimed country music singer songwriter and Walker on the hit show "Yellowstone," partnered to support the Park and Madison counties from recent catastrophic flood damage.

"We were thrilled to host Ryan on our stage and blown-away by his generosity to donate his time for the cause," says Brett Evje, co-owner of the renowned Old Saloon establishment. "Having the additional support of Outriders Presents, and the large financial contributions of Simkins-Hallin, and the numerous people who rose to the occasion means a lot to the community."

"On behalf of the many individuals in Park County this fund will help, I want to extend my deep gratitude to everyone at the Old Saloon and Ryan Bingham for their generous support of the SW Montana Flood Relief Fund and the people of Park County. Over the past weeks, I have been witness to an incredible display of people helping people - the epitome of the Montana Spirit. This gift from the Old Saloon and the generosity of Ryan Bingham is an example of that way of life we all love and the reason we call Montana home," proclaims Gavin Clark, Park County Community Foundation executive director.

In the hours following the flooding, the Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund- serving Park County, was collaboratively launched between Greater Gallatin United Way and the Park County Community Foundation to support communities affected by the severe flooding in June.

So far, the Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund has raised over 1 million dollars from over 1,000 donors. The fund is providing financial assistance for home/business property damage, clean-up efforts, emergency evacuation reimbursement, and other crisis needs. Over $800,000 has been distributed.

ServeNow Helps with Flood Relief in Asia with Medical Volunteer Teams and Blanket Distribution

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- At the same time as Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc in Texas, with Hurricane Irma following in Florida, unprecedented flooding was occurring in India, Nepal and Bangladesh, the nonprofit ServeNow announced today. This has largely been overshadowed by these other events and has received little press coverage.

"Over 1,400 people died and two million have lost their homes. There is now a great need for medical clinics and winter coverings in the flood affected areas," says Ben Foley, of ServeNow. "This winter is projected to be one of the worst in decades, and so with a couple million without homes, warm winter coverings will be needed more than ever."

Conducting medical clinics and distributing winter coverings have been two specific services ServeNow has been providing for the past several years in these exact parts of the world. Staff on the ground has already begun responding but ServeNow needs to ramp up efforts to meet the requests coming in.

Every $350 enables ServeNow to treat a couple hundred people via medical clinics. ServeNow has a network of doctors willing to volunteer their time in addition to staff. Many of those affected by the floods cannot afford to see a doctor or even have access to basic medicines. They are also unprotected from colder weather approaching.

Every $15 also provides a heavy and warm blanket or other necessary winter coverings for the most vulnerable, particularly children and the elderly. These items can literally be life-saving for a harsh winter ahead.
