Tornadoes Touch Down in Indiana
The Salvation Army has been aiding in relief efforts in Southern Indiana since the deadly tornadoes tore through last week.
The “Hoosiers” have really come through supporting The Salvation
Army tornado relief efforts. More than $350,000 was raised in three days to
help survivors! Local news stations have set up drive-thru donation sites with
100% of money raised goes to relief work with the survivors.
Mobile feeding units will continue to be in place for the next several weeks. Within one week, the next phase of The Salvation Army’s response will begin. This will include clean-up and emergency financial assistance for families as well as continued social service assistance to storm survivors in Ripley County.
Monetary donations are the most critical need as supplies and personnel are mobilized.
The quickest and easiest way to support the efforts of The Salvation Army as they serve victims is to make a monetary donation. You can make a donation online at http://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/storms, or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or make a $10.00 donation by texting “storm” to 80888, to confirm your gift, respond with the word “Yes.”
