Thank You, Best Buy!

Last week, The Salvation Army of New Orleans received 1,000 “disaster kits” from generous retailer Best Buy.

The kits, designed to provide connectivity during times of crisis, contain a Rocketfish mobile charger, Energizer batteries AA and AAA, an Energizer flashlight with batteries, and a light stick – all products of Best Buy.

“Best Buy is proud to partner with Salvation Army to support disaster relief and recovery with a donation of products that provide connectivity,” said Kristine Kosek, Best Buy Community Relations.

We are so thankful for Best Buy’s good faith and support of our Emergency Disaster Services.


Providing kits such as this to survivors of natural or man-made disasters is just one way in which The Salvation Army aids families in need. To read more about the different ways we serve before and after disaster strikes, as well as ways you can get involved, visit
