Salvation Army of Florida prepared to assist states torn apart by tornadoes
The Salvation Army of Florida has been assisting counties in Florida affected by wildfires. Now Salvation Army officers are preparing to help several Southern states devastated by severe storms including Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
The Salvation Army’s Alabama -Louisiana-Mississippi (ALM) Division has already mobilized 10 feeding units and a communications unit. Another 22 mobile feeding units including catering trucks, mobile kitchens, and a 20,000 meal per day full service field kitchen have been placed on standby. Units are providing food, beverage, and spiritual support to storm victims in Tuscaloosa, Guntersville, and Lauderdale County, Alabama as well as Montpelier and Oxford, Mississippi. Mobile feeding units from the Kentucky-Tennessee Division (KTN) are serving victims in Chattanooga and Cleveland, Tennessee. The Salvation Army of Georgia is also mobilizing staff and volunteers to help in northwest Georgia.
The Salvation Army is asking for help with assisting those in need. People can give by texting “GIVE” to 80888, calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY, logging on to www.salvationarmyusa.org. Checks may be made out to The Salvation Army Disaster Relief, P.O. Box 100339, Atlanta, GA 30384-0339.
