Arlington, TX: - Two tractor trailers loaded with emergency supplies departed The Salvation Army Disaster Warehouse in Arlington, TX, Tuesday afternoon, headed for Oklahoma.  

 

The Salvation Army in Texas is responding to the ongoing needs of thousands of people affected by a series of tornados that struck Oklahoma on Monday evening, May 10. The trailers were loaded with food containers, paper plates, plastic ware, water and Gatorade.

 

Salvation Army staff and volunteers in Oklahoma continue to provide meal service, hydration and emotional and spiritual care to people in Cleveland, Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole Counties.

 

Emergency Mobile Feeding Units are on standby at Salvation Army locations throughout North Texas in case additional disaster support is requested.

 

Financial donations are needed to support relief efforts. The Salvation Army asks those who want to help the individuals and families affected by the tornadoes to visit www.salvationarmy.org or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY and designate Oklahoma tornadoes. Monetary donations will ensure The Salvation Army can meet the most immediate needs of those impacted by the storm.
