Salvation Army Striking Back at Tennessee Floods

Thursday, May 6, 2010

Through relief, support, and hope, The Salvation Army is working to restore some of the massive damage wreaked by historic flash floods in central and western Tennessee.

The Nashville Salvation Army has been persistently posting updates on their social networking sites including their blog (salarmynashville.wordpress.com), Facebook page and Twitter (@SalArmy). Be sure to visit these sites to read firsthand information and learn about how you can provide needed assistance.

We are thankful to the many volunteers have rallied along side The Salvation Army to help prepare meals, distribute food at mass feedings, and collect in-kind donations.

Our crews from the surrounding areas of Knoxville and Winchester, TN and Bowling Green and Madisonville, KY have also joined in the relief efforts. Mobile feeding units (canteens) are set up in multiple locations around Nashville offering food and water to those in the hardest hit areas. As of Tuesday evening, more than 2,300 meals had been served.

Thank you as well to the rescue crews who brought 80 of our Adult Rehabilitation Center clients to safety after the floods overtook our building! We greatly appreciate your help which enables us to help others!
