We combat natural disasters with acts of God

Disasters of incredible magnitude call for people of incredible generosity.

The mobile canteen for this region is housed in Bloomington (Monroe County) but is available

for the surrounding counties of

Brown, Davies, Greene, Lawrence, Martin and Orange.

Volunteer to help after a Disaster

Volunteers are the heart of the recovery efforts, we need people ready in all of the 6 counties that we serve. To volunteer and get trained contact your local Salvation Army office or Extension Rep.

How we help disaster survivors

After a fire or natural disaster the Salvation Army will try to help the family get back to normal.  In most cases the American Red Cross will provide the first 2 to 3 days of assistance after which the Salvation Army will begin the recovery process which often takes months.  This may be help with the basics of shelter, clothing and food.  But also the spiritual aspect of after the tragedy happens.
