The Salvation Army Disaster Relief
PO BOX 1959
Atlanta, GA 30301
Please make checks payable to "The Salvation Army" and clearly marked "May 2013 Oklahoma Tornados."
We encourage you to contribute cash to aid us in our disaster relief efforts. In-kind donations require sorting, boxing, palletizing, storage, and delivery to the disaster location. All of these activities can be costly and time consuming, and therefore may delay service delivery. Cash donations allow The Salvation Army to purchase product to quickly and efficiently meet the most urgent needs of disaster victims. When possible, the purchases are made near the disaster site to stimulate the local economy and ensure quicker delivery.
Corporate (Bulk) Donations
The Salvation Army appreciates in-kind gift offers from corporate contributors. For all jurisdictions, outside the AOK Division, corporate in-kind gift offers should be referred to:

Used clothing and used furnishings are not needed for disaster relief.
However, The Salvation Army depends upon your donation of used clothing and other items to support local programming. Please consider donating your used clothing to your local Salvation Army Thrift Store.
