Strong Turn Out in Syracuse for Haiti Hunger Relief

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

What do you get when you combine more than 2,600 Syracuse volunteers, Numana, and The Salvation Army? Apparently, 867,858 meals for Haiti!

In another one of our Numana community meal packing events for earthquake survivors, citizens of the greater Syracuse, NY area really wowed us by showing up in unexpected numbers and helping us far exceed our expected goal for the event! Individuals of all ages and backgrounds turned out, including a couple and their two 5 year old boys who they just recently adopted from Haiti.

Read the story about Saturday’s event HERE at The Salvation Army Eastern Territory’s website.

Numana’s website lists upcoming meal event locations and dates at www.numanainc.com.

10,000,000!

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

If you’ve been following The Salvation Army’s relief efforts in Haiti you know that we’ve partnered with Numana, a hunger relief organization, and tens of thousands of volunteers from around the country to pack and ship nutritious and simple meals for earthquake survivors.

Here’s some exciting news:

We’ve reached ten million – 10,000,000 – meals for Haiti since January’s earthquake!

This weekend at multiple events around the country, San Francisco, CA saw more than 1 million meals prepared in one day, volunteers in Champaign-Urbana, IL also packaged 1 million meals, and New London, CT put together 269,016 meals ready to be shipped.

That’s amazing, and we couldn’t do it without the help of our volunteers! If you would like to volunteer at upcoming events or learn more information about Numana, visit their website at www.numanainc.com.

As Oil Spill Nears Coast, Salvation Army Serves Clean-Up Volunteers

Monday, May 3, 2010

British Petroleum (BP) and state and local government entities contacted The Salvation Army this weekend for our help in supporting thousands of volunteers who are responding to the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill. As the oil approaches the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts, The Salvation Army deployed teams to Ocean Springs, Mississippi and Venice, Louisiana to handout water to the throngs of individuals who are participating in the clean-up efforts.

The Salvation Army is continuing discussions with involved governments and BP to find additional ways to support the clean-up efforts.

Be sure to follow The Salvation Army’s Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi Division’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, which they are frequently updating with volunteer information and news of their latest efforts. You can also find more information at their website www.salvationarmyalm.org.
