The Salvation Army Continues to Serve in Wake of Hurricane Florence
Florence has left the east coast and people are slowly returning to their homes. More than 600 Salvation Army officers, staff and volunteers are working to provide hope in the communities impacted.
In response to the storm, The Salvation Army has provided:
- 53,700 meals
- 50,000 drinks
- 32,000 snacks
- 350 comfort kits
- 25,500 hours of service
There are 55 mobile feeding units in service and an addition 28 units on standby. Each unit can feed up to 1,500 meals a day. As communities become more accessible, the canteens (mobile kitchens) will rove in neighborhoods to provide food and support to people who have been without power since the storm hit.
There are feeding and spiritual care operations at the following locations:
- Washington, NC
- Greenville, NC
- Goldsboro, NC
- Kinston, NC
- Jacksonville, NC
- Morehead City, NC
- New Bern, NC

In many other locations, The Salvation Army is providing, services and hope to first responders and emergency management officials. We’re also partnering with local government, the Red Cross and other disaster support providers to feed people in evacuation shelters.
