October 30, 2014 – | No Comment

According to the Weather Channel, hot, molten lava from the Kilauea volcano is slowing creeping toward 900 homes in the city of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii. Thankfully, Salvation Army personnel are already prepared to respond with food and water for displaced residents, emergency management workers and volunteers through the use of our mobile kitchen – called a “canteen.”

Hurricane Sandy’s survivors are grateful for your kindness

Submitted by on November 14, 2012 – No Comment

As you will see in this video, the survivors of Hurricane Sandy are grateful for your kindness. And so are we.

Life is still not back to normal for many in Hurricane Sandy’s path, so we’ll continue to serve indefinitely.

If you’d still like to make a financial gift, here’s a breakdown of what your gift will provide:
· A $10 donation feeds a disaster survivor for one day.
· A $30 donation provides one food box, containing staple foods for a family of four, or one household cleanup kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets and other cleaning supplies.
· A $100 donation can serve snacks and drinks for 125 survivors and emergency personnel at the scene of a disaster.
· A $250 donation can provide one hot meal to 100 people or keep a hydration station operational for 24 hours.
· A $500 donation keeps a Salvation Army canteen (mobile feeding unit) fully operational for one day.

Donors are encouraged to give online at www.SalvationArmyUSA.org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769). You can also text the word “STORM” to 80888 to make a $10 donation through your mobile phone; to confirm your gift, respond with the word “Yes.”*

Those interested in volunteering should register at www.disaster.salvationarmyusa.org. Please note that disaster service training is a prerequisite for volunteering in a disaster zone and not all registered volunteers will be called on to serve.

Due to the high expense and time demands associated with delivering your gently-used household goods and clothing (gifts-in-kind), The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that any individual gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area.

In times of disaster, our stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. By continuing to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army store, you not only help your community, you help us prepare for future disaster relief needs. To find your nearest drop-off location, please go to www.satruck.org.

Checks may be made out to The Salvation Army Disaster Services Center, PO BOX 1959 Atlanta, GA 30301. Please designate “2012 Hurricane Season” on all checks.

Corporations, foundations and others interested in donating to The Salvation Army response effort should contact Janella Eccleston.
