Salvation Army Responds to Oklahoma Tornadoes

The Salvation Army is responding to the tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma yesterday.  Five fatalities have been confirmed in Central Oklahoma with 57 injuries, and nearly 37,000 homes are without power.  Local authorities are assessing damage and conducting searches for survivors at this time.  Searches are expected to continue through the night.

Within The Salvation Army’s Arkansas-Oklahoma Division, mobile feeding units (canteens) and individual officers are providing food and refreshments for first responders and others in the some of the hardest hit areas. An emotional and spiritual care team will also be deployed to support those affected by the storm’s fatalities.

For anyone who would like to help those affected by the tornadoes, please consider donating at or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY and designate your contribution to “Oklahoma tornadoes.” Monetary donations will ensure The Salvation Army can meet the most immediate needs of those impacted by the storm.
