The Salvation Army of the Greater Chattanooga Area received orders to deploy two officers and one staff member to join other Salvation Army units in the wake of the Hurricane Florence disaster.
Captain Nathan Jones, Lt. James Harvin and Drew Scott will leave Monday morning for Wilmington, NC. From there, they will be assigned to any one of the nine Salvation Army service points to aid communities affected by providing water, hot meals and emotional and spiritual care for two weeks or more.
As always in times of disaster, The Salvation Army is often one of the first relief agencies on the scene and will remain to assist survivors until service is no longer needed. The Salvation Army serves every zip code in the United States; they were there before the storm, during the storm, and will remain serving after the storm.
The Salvation Army solicits your prayers and support. To give monetarily, visit helpsalvationarmy.org or call 1-800-Sal-Army or text Florence to 91999.
