San Francisco Makes 1 Million Meals for Haiti in Record 15 Hours

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

More than 2,000 volunteers turned out to help The Salvation Army and Numana Inc. pack 1 million meals for Haiti last Saturday, completing the extraordinary feat within 15 hours! Our previous events have always been spaced out over 2 days, so thanks to everyone who worked so hard to help us meet this goal.

Salvation Army staff can’t hide their joy after volunteers packed one million meals in less than 24 hours.

With the help of UPS and FedEx, these million meals are in the process of being transported to Haiti where we will distribute them to the tens of thousands of Haitians who are being cared for by our teams.

Read more details about the Million Meals for Haiti event at The Salvation Army Western Territory’s Expect Change blog and see recently posted photos at The Salvation Army San Francisco’s Flickr page.

Learn more about how The Salvation Army San Francisco serves those in need by visiting their website at www.tsagoldenstate.org and stay updated through their Facebook page.

More meal packing events will be taking place around the United States, including one in Philadelphia on May 21 and 22, so stay updated through our blog, Facebook, and Twitter page to see when you can volunteer for the next one in your neighborhood.

How to Help Those in South Affected by Devastating Tornadoes

Monday, April 26, 2010

The Salvation Army asks people who want to help those affected by the deadly tornadoes in Mississippi to visit www.salvationarmyusa.org or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

Monetary donations are needed to meet survivors’ most immediate needs. A $100 donation will feed a family of four for two days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household cleanup kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets and cleaning supplies.

The Salvation Army is currently not accepting donations of clothing and furniture for storm victims. Please forward these donations to The Salvation Army Family Store nearest you.

We are coordinating services with local and state authorities through the state Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Volunteers are asked to visit www.msema.gov to register as a volunteer.

Our teams continue to provide for physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of those who affected by these devastating storms. On Saturday, our Disaster Response teams served more than 830 hot meals and 450 snacks to residents and first responders in Mississippi.
For up to the date information, please visit The Salvation Army Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi Division’s website at www.salvationarmyalm.org or visit their Facebook page.
