(September 14, 2018) The Salvation Army of Eastern PA and Delaware’s Emergency Disaster Services is on standby for potential deployment in response to Hurricane Florence, as it makes its way inland along the coast of the Carolinas.
Since Monday, September 10, The Salvation Army has been working around the clock to mobilize response teams to prepare and respond to needs after landfall. More than 60 mobile feeding units from around the country are stationed along the coast to serve communities impacted by Hurricane Florence. Trained personnel are also preparing to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual care to individuals and families impacted by the storm and first responders. We are there before, during, and after the storm.
We are able to do all of this thanks to the generous donations we receive from the community. The Salvation Army uses 100 percent of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief. Your donation may be used to provide food and drinks, cleaning supplies and other essential commodities, financial assistance to disaster survivors, long-term recovery assistance programs including repair and reconstruction projects, or to support disaster relief workers serving in impacted communities. The Salvation Army NEVER places an administrative fee on disaster donations.
You can support the ongoing relief work of The Salvation Army by making a financial donation at http://www.helpsalvationarmy.org, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or text STORM to 51555.
