Salvation Army Relocating Omaha Disaster Resource Center's (DRC) Flood-Relief Supplies to Sarpy-Cass and Council Bluffs DRCs
In an effort to concentrate critical flood-relief assets in areas of greatest need, The Salvation Army Western Division is moving flood-relief items from its Omaha DRC to its two other metro-area DRCs -- one at Southroads Mall in Bellevue (the Sarpy-Cass DRC) and one in Council Bluffs (the Council Bluffs DRC).
“The need is growing at the Sarpy-Cass DRC and the Council Bluffs DRC,” said Major Greg Thompson, Divisional Commander. “We’re seeing more and more people stopping by those locations and picking up flood-relief items, and fewer people stopping by the Omaha DRC. This move is an effort to more efficiently and effectively meet that need.” Major Thompson added that people needing flood-relief items are encouraged to go to the Sarpy-Cass DRC or the Council Bluffs DRC going forward.
As part of this move, the Omaha DRC (near 84th and Center) will wind down its operations the week of April 8-12 -- and will cease operations at 5 p.m. Friday, April 12. Until that time, it will remain open to the public, although supplies of flood-relief items will be limited.
PLEASE NOTE: The Sarpy-Cass DRC and the Council Bluffs DRC will continue operating until further notice. Locations and operating hours for the week of April 8-14 are as follows:
