Salvation Army Continues to Respond to Hurricanes

Hurricane Relief Efforts Donation Card

 

The Salvation Army continues to be active in response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma by providing meals, snacks, drinks, shelter, comfort kits, cleanup kits, and emotional & spiritual care to anyone affected by the hurricanes. In Texas, mobile feeding units (canteens) are delivering three meals a day and essential supplies to communities still without power or where power has only recently been restored. To date, The Salvation Army has served 446,158 meals, 496,369 drinks, and 11,022 comfort kits in response to Hurricane Harvey. In Florida, all 47 Salvation Army units, from Pensacola to south Florida, are assessing and serving residents in need. The Salvation Army will have a presence throughout the entire recovery process and be there for anyone affected by Harvey or Irma.

Locally, the best and quickest way to support The Salvation Army’s hurricane relief efforts is through financial donations. To make a donation, please visit www.helpsalvationarmy.org, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY, text STORM to 51555 or you can send a check to The Salvation Army at 405 Vermont, Quincy, IL 62301 and designate “Hurricane Relief ” in the memo line. 100% of donations marked disaster relief are used for that purpose. At this time, we are not planning on sending any physical items (food, clothing, water, etc.) to assist with relief efforts unless specifically requested by The Salvation Army in Texas or Florida, however, those items are always welcome at our Family Stores and food pantries in Quincy and Hannibal to support our local efforts.

Quincy Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services Coordinator, Jeremy Koren, is currently slated to travel to impacted areas to assist in recovery coordination.
