Salvation Army serving at the fire lines in San Diego

Submitted by on May 16, 2014 – No Comment

SD FiresThe statewide drought in California is making for an early and severe fire season.

For the last two days our Emergency Disaster Services staff in San Diego have been serving the first responders on the fire lines.

We have four mobile hydration units circulating in the areas impacted by the fires handing out water, hot coffee and Gatorade to fire fighters and evacuees, as well as pastries in the morning.

With centers in Oceanside and Escondido, as well as throughout the county, The Salvation Army is prepared whatever support as needed.

“Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these fires,” says Lt. James Parks of the Escondido Salvation Army Corps Community Center. “That cold bottle of water is a way of letting people know their community cares about them.”

Those wishing to help The Salvation Army with short- and long-term assistance for fire survivors can make a financial gift.
