Salvation Army Hosts BBQ For Oneida Flood Affected Residents

Released 11 July 2013

The Salvation Army: Always there when and where you need us.

(Syracuse, N.Y., July 11, 2013) --The Salvation Army will be hosting a BBQ in Oneida on Saturday, July 13 for flood affected residents and volunteers in Oneida.  The event will run from 11-1 p.m. at the parking lot across from the City of Oneida Police Department/City Hall at the corner of East Railroad Street & Main Street.  You will see a tent at that location with the Salvation Army logo on it.

“We’re inviting residents who have spent more than a week cleaning out and repairing the damage to their houses to take a break, share stories with their neighbors, laugh, cry and eat together,” said Major Karla Clark, of The Salvation Army’s Empire State Division Headquarters.

“As the Army transitions from mass feeding and supplies to long term recovery support, we will continue to meet the needs of the Oneida community,” she added.
Syracuse Chef David Radzyminski is volunteering to cook at the event. Central New York who businesses have donated to the event includes King’s Catering in Canandaigua, Dinosaur BBQ and MaineSource Food and Party Warehouse.
