Salvation Army Serves Up Comfort to Tornado Survivors in Mobile, AL
An EF-2 tornado tore through Mobile, AL on Christmas Day, one of 40 reported across the South throughout the holiday.
The Salvation Army in Mobile had just finished serving Christmas dinner to over 1,000 area residents that day when the storm barreled through the city’s Midtown section, leaving downed power lines, toppled trees and heavy property damage.
In response, The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services teams deployed canteens (mobile kitchens) and served comfort food such as soup, sandwiches, coffee, biscuits and gravy, and Krispy Kreme donuts to residents and first responders in Mobile’s hardest-hit neighborhoods.
Additionally, The Salvation Army opened a shelter last night for displaced residents looking for refuge from the cold temperature at 1009 Dauphin Street.
The Salvation Army continues to serve the area with food, shelter, as well as spiritual and emotional care.
