Hot meals and compassion provided to flood victims in Corinth, Miss.

 

Jackson, Miss: The City of Corinth has requested that The Salvation Army deploy a mobile feeding unit to the Combs Court housing complex that was inundated by water following heavy rains on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Over 70 units have been flooded leaving between 200-250 residents in need of feeding and clean-up assistance.

 

The Salvation Army’s mobile feeding unit from Tupelo will be on site to feed and hydrate residents at Combs Court on Cass Street in Corinth. The Salvation Army will take responsibility for feeding at a shelter set up by the Red Cross in Corinth.

 

The Salvation Army will also be distributing disaster clean-up kits to Alcorn and Tippah County residents beginning Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at The Salvation Army in Corinth. Clean-up kits include: mop, squeegee, broom, bucket, gloves, and cleaning supplies.

 

Additional disaster recovery assistance is available through The Salvation Army by calling (662) 287-6979 or by visiting 2200 Lackey Drive in Corinth.

 

Salvation Army personnel are working with Local and State emergency management officials and other VOAD agencies to coordinate services and provide ongoing assistance to residents across the mid-south.

 

“Our goal is to provide for the needs of residents affected by the flooding and tornados in Northeast Mississippi,” stated Michelle Miles of The Salvation Army in Corinth. “Wherever needs present themselves our mission is to respond.”

 

The Salvation Army continues hydration support for oil spill volunteers on the Gulf Coast. Four units are providing water and drinks in Venice, La and Baldwin County, Ala.

 

Financial donations are always needed to offset the expense of Disaster Services. Please call 1-800-SAL-ARMY or visit www.salvationarmyusa.org. To volunteer in future disaster responses please contact your local Salvation Army.
