Responding To Dallas/Ft. Worth Tornadoes

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

In response to the 12 tornadoes that struck the Dallas/Fort Worth area, The Salvation Army deployed two mobile kitchens to provide food, hydration, and emotional comfort to people in two locations, including the Kelly area of Arlington and The Salvation Army community center in Pleasant Grove where local residents have sought a safe place to stay during the storms. The mobile vehicles may move to new locations depending on changing needs or emerging situations.

Hanes Donation Provides Warmth & Opportunities for Ministry

Monday, April 2, 2012

Did you know socks are the #1 item requested at our homeless shelters? And thanks to Hanes’ generous donation of 250,000 pairs this last Christmas season, our shelters were able to provide many individuals with this much-needed and often overlooked commodity.

Guest blogger Captain Phil Smith in Santa Barbara, California decided to use part of their sock donation to support their “Street Level” Outreach Ministry.
