Remember 9/11: Salvation Army Operations at Ground Zero

Friday, September 9, 2011

The footage in this video gives some deeper insight into The Salvation Army’s role in the months following the September 11 attacks.

Our relief effort called “Compassion Under Fire,” allowed us to control the feeding operation at Ground Zero. The large tent that we set up next to Ground Zero was dubbed the “Taj Majal”. It is here that we were able to serve rescue and response workers looking for food and rest.

Our efforts were supported by several New York City restaurants as part of the Restaurant Revitalization Program. The program allowed for The Salvation Army to choose other restaurants from which to purchase food to serve at the tent.

Additionally, The Salvation Army provided protective gloves, masks, and socks. More importantly, Salvation Army pastoral caregivers were able to pray with and counsel rescue and recovery workers toiling under emotionally and physically draining circumstances.

“In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.” Psalm 62.7

Remembering 9/11: Video Footage

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Check out this short video containing footage from the 9/11 attacks, showcasing the “people in blue” near the end.

Did you know…

The Salvation Army was the first relief agency to arrive at the scene of the 9/11 attacks, reporting within a half-hour of the first plane hitting?
Officials granted us full control of the feeding operation at Ground Zero – a relief effort called Compassion Under Fire – for nine months following the attacks?
We served 3.2 million meals to victims, volunteers, firemen, policemen, and emergency disaster relief workers?
Salvation Army pastoral caregivers provided emotional and spiritual support to rescue and recovery workers?
We couldn’t have done any of this without the thousands of loving volunteers and generous donors that served our efforts.

Thank you for your support.
