The Salvation Army Responds to Hurricane Florence

Sep 14, 2018


Hurricane Florence has officially made landfall and is pounding the Carolinas. The Salvation Army was on the ground early this week preparing for the hurricane. The early deployment included emergency disaster services experts, crews and equipment from more than 10 states. Additional officers, staff and volunteers will be called in to relieve those units in the next coming weeks.

As of 8 a.m. CST, the response activities are:

  • 42 mobile feeding units with an additional 21 on standby
  • More than 6.500 meals; 5,400 beverages and 4,300 snacks provided
  • Nearly 7,000 hours service

The Army is currently supporting emergency operations staff and first responders. Once storm damage reports have been received and local needs have been determined, Emergency Disaster Services teams of Salvation Army officers, trained volunteers, and staff will focus primarily on immediate needs providing food, hydration, and emotional and spiritual care to impacted individuals, families, and first responders.

In times of disaster, the best way to help survivors and relief workers is to make a financial contribution. Monetary donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors.
