MultiVu Video Feed: Salvation Army Responding to Hurricane Ike With Food, Water & Pastoral Care
Date:9/15/2008

Today, more than 100 Salvation Army mobile feeding units are responding to the devastation brought by Hurricane Ike in Texas. Several convoys of canteens and mobile kitchens are currently in the disaster zone serving the millions of people who are without power in the areas around Beaumont, Galveston, Houston and Lufkin.

"Our 'strike team' members were awed by the power of this storm and the extent of the devastation," said Major Marshall Gesner, Greater Houston Area Commander for The Salvation Army. "Communications on the ground are difficult, there is no power, and the water system is compromised in many places. What this all means for us is a lot of hungry, thirsty people who are going to need relief for an extended period of time. We are calling on the public to help us mount a long-term response that could last several weeks or months."

The Salvation Army has mobilized forces capable of serving more than 210,000 meals per day to evacuees, emergency workers and those affected by the storm. The organization is accepting donations online at http://www.salvationarmyusa.org and by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY. The Salvation Army is currently not accepting donations of clothing and furniture for storm victims; however, please continue giving to your local Salvation Army thrift store and the much needed programs your in-kind gifts support.
