Area Salvation Army Personnel Ready To Help With Florence

All Salvation Army units in the Commonwealth of Virginia are preparing to
respond to expected flooding from Hurricane Florence. The Covington Corps is
readying its mobile canteen and setting up an incident command headquarters at
115 S. Lexington. “The exact nature of the response will depend on the needs that
develop,” says Major Kim Feinauer, “but our capabilities include the distribution
of cleaning supplies, sheltering for twenty-five individuals, mobile feeding, and
feeding on-site.”
The Salvation Army in Covington is part of a regional Salvation Army
response that includes central, western, and southern Virginia. Additional mobile
feeding units have already been brought into the region from surrounding states.
They will be available, as needed, to help the Covington Corps provide hydration,
nourishment, emotional and spiritual care to first responders and those affected by
the storm.
People who wish to donate to the response effort are advised to contact or to call 1-800-SAL-ARMY. Donations by check may
be brought to The Salvation Army at 115 S. Lexington, Covington, VA 24426,
marked “Disaster Response.”
