THE SALVATION ARMY PROVIDES LOCAL AND NATIONAL DISASTER SERVICES

When catastrophe strikes, your generosity strikes back.

Thanks to your help, The Salvation Army serves disaster survivors from the moment of impact until the healing is complete. Proving that while disasters may be unpredictable the good of people is not.

Thank you for your continued giving.

For the most up to date answers on how The Salvation Army is responding to recent natural disasters please go to The Salvation Army's Disaster Services website: www.disaster.SalvationArmyUSA.org

What is important is that you realize how you CAN help The Salvation Army and those who are devastated by these disasters.

MONETARY DONATIONS are the most critical need as supplies and personnel are mobilized.

GIFTS IN KIND: Due to the high expense and time demands associated with delivering gently used household goods and clothing (gifts-in-kind), The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that any individual gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area. In times of disaster, our family (thrift) stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. By continuing to donate gently used household goods to your local Salvation Army stores, you not only help your community, you help us prepare for future disaster relief needs.

The Salvation Army's first major Disaster Relief efforts resulted from the tragedies of the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 and the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906.

The Salvationists' nationwide appeals for financial and material donations yielded tremendous support, enabling the Army to provide assistance to thousands. General Evangeline Booth, when she offered the services of Salvationists to President Wilson during the First World War thrust Salvation Army social and relief work to newer heights. Today the Salvation Army is best known for its charitable efforts.

The Salvation Army is a prominent non-governmental relief agency and is usually among the first to arrive with help after natural or man-made disasters. They have worked to alleviate suffering and help people rebuild their lives. 

Whenever a disaster occurs The Salvation Army is prepared to provide the following: 

Assistance to disaster workers

Meals (Individual/Mass Feeding through Mobile Field Kitchens and Canteens)

Water and Ice 

Emergency Shelter 

Distribution of Food and Clothing 

Cleaning Supplies and Hygiene Products

MOBILE   FIELD   KITCHEN 

The new field kitchen is 53 feet long and capable of producing 22,000 to 25,000 meals a day. It can hold 400 gallons of water, has a walk-in refrigerator and can produce 80 gallons of coffee an hour.

During a disaster, meals can be prepared in the field kitchen and then taken to the canteens, where the meals are given to rescue workers, disaster victims and volunteers.

Another quick fact about the field kitchen: it's the largest in the Southern Territory, ready to start cooking within one hour of arriving at a location.
