Hurricane Sandy Relief Continues, Thanks to Supporters

Thank you to everyone who has supported The Salvation Army’s ongoing relief efforts along the East Coast following Hurricane Sandy’s devastating blow.

Over the last few days, we have been blessed with encouraging comments from fans and followers on our Facebook and Twitter pages, and continue to receive an abundance of offers to help through either donating or volunteering. We are incredibly thankful for this thoughtful and generous support which enables our Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) crews to meet the needs of communities in crisis throughout the northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

In New York City, The Salvation Army has served hundreds of thousands meals via several service sites and mobile canteens. With the assistance of 400 National Guard troops, The Salvation Army was able to deliver meals to shut-in residents.

In New Jersey, The Salvation Army is supporting first responders and survivors with food and emotional and spiritual care in 15 shelters throughout 10 counties.

And in Maryland and West Virginia where two feet of snow had left thousands without power and in dire need, The Salvation Army supported evacuees with food and shelter.
