Salvation Army Providing Support in Boston, MA

The Salvation Army is providing support to survivors and first responders in Boston, Massachusetts, after two explosions occurred near the Boston Marathon finish line this afternoon. The blasts caused at least two deaths and dozens of injuries for runners and spectators.

Salvation Army officers and volunteers are en route to the scene with two canteens (mobile kitchens) to provide spiritual and emotional support; one to the staging area for emergency responders, and one where families are gathering. In addition to food and beverage services, officers who are trained in crisis counseling will be at the relevant locations to provide emotional and spiritual care.

The Salvation Army is in constant communication with city and state emergency personnel, and will be providing support as needed and requested.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston and all who were impacted by the explosions.
