The Salvation Army is providing food, shelter, water, and emotional and spiritual care to survivors and first responders of a 6.0 earthquake that shocked Northern California on August 24.
The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) has deployed multiple mobile feeding units – we call them canteens – to the Napa area. Additional teams sent to the evacuation center in Napa are serving meals to displaced residents and first responders. Two other canteens have been stationed in other parts of Napa to also serve meals: the Salvador Mobile Estates and the Napa Valley Mobile Home Park.
The Salvation Army will continue to assess the ongoing needs and how to best assist residents and first responders throughout the response process. Salvation Army personnel and volunteers are trained, and prepared, to provide relief and emotional and spiritual care for as long as needed.
Financial gifts are the most critical need as supplies and personnel are mobilized.
