Columbus Tornado Relief All About Community

Columbus, MS (February 28, 2019)— Immediately after an EF-3 tornado struck the small town of Columbus—known as “The Friendly City”—  on Saturday, February 23, 2019, The Salvation Army has been serving and partnering with community groups and businesses to bring as much help as possible to those in need. The Community Benefit Committee, a local volunteer group made up of community leaders in Columbus, approached The Salvation Army early on about working together and a fruitful relationship was born. “The Salvation Army’s values are so close to ours, so who better to work with,” said Rhonda Sanders, Columbus police officer and one of the chief coordinators of The Community Benefit Committee.

Columbus Salvation Army Corps Officer, Lt. Christian Smith, says the partnership has been a blessed experience all around. “We recognize the needs for the community will be ongoing and are grateful for all partnerships and the donations which have been provided thus far. It is heartwarming to see how everyone has come together to serve those who have been affected. It’s pretty much like providing a big group hug,” said Lt. Smith.

To date, The Salvation Army has distributed the following tornado relief items to the Columbus community: 2,480 meals, 2,020 drinks, 820 snacks, 400 comfort/hygiene kits, 160 tarps, 100 blankets, and 200 pillows. To donate to The Salvation Army’s relief efforts, go to helpsalvationarmy.org .

Beaufort, S.C. (February 27, 2019) – At the request of the local police department, The Salvation Army of Beaufort, South Carolina is providing temporary housing for 50 people displaced on Sunday by an early morning fire at the Knight’s Inn in Hardeeville, South Carolina. Some of the people displaced are children ages 18 months to 12 years old who were living at the hotel. Estimates are that as many as 30 people were living at the Knights Inn permanently.

“When we received the call from the Hardeeville Police Department, we sprang into action. The Salvation Army is a safety net for people in our community to help meet their physical needs. But as we provide service we are also leading them to Jesus,” said Captain Robert Long of The Salvation Army of Beaufort. “During heartwrenching times such as this, the healing power of our Savior is every bit as important as the physical needs we address.”

The Salvation Army continues to work with the Hardeeville Police Department and other community partners to identify and address unmet needs.

Please continue to pray for the families impacted by this fire. Monetary contributions can be made to The Salvation Army the following ways:

Salvation Army Cadets, Southern Baptists Worship, Serve Together After Hurricane

Panama City, FL – This morning, at an altar made from cardboard boxes and draped with a disaster vest, cadets of The Salvation Army’s Southern Territory led a congregation of disaster workers in prayer.  The service, held in a supply tent, brought together Salvation Army and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief workers.  Operating from an empty parking lot, the site in Panama City Beach had become the center of the groups’ feeding operations.  After Hurricane Michael, the mobile kitchens stationed in the lot produced tens of thousands of meals for hungry disaster survivors and rescue workers across the Florida Gulf coast.

The cadets, Salvation Army ‘officers-in-training’ from Evangeline Booth College in Atlanta, have been on the frontlines of disaster relief efforts, cooking, serving meals from mobile feeding units, managing disaster warehouses and distributing supplies to disaster survivors.   Touched by the pain caused by the hurricane, the congregation shared stories of the people they had met, including the story of a child who spoke little after the trauma of the storm. A volunteer reminded her how brave she was standing up to Hurricane Michael’s fury.  On a return visit to the canteen, the girl smiled and told the worker in a clear voice, “I am brave.”

“We have been a source of hope to the community and a comfort to those impacted by the storm,” Cadet Nathalie Arroqui reminded the assembled workers.  “But it is God who provides the strength to go out into the community, to feed people, and to provide hope.”

Disaster work, of course, is not always easy.  In his devotional message, Cadet James Guzman said that if you wanted to, reasons could easily be found to complain: the sleeping tents were cold, waking up before dawn was hard, the work was physically demanding and often exhausting.  “But,” he said, “I serve joyfully because I have Jesus in my heart and the people need us.”

The congregation sang a hymn by composer and General John Gowans, apropos of the call that had brought disaster workers of both faiths to the Gulf coast:

There are people living in the world out there…

They need you, they need me, they need Christ;

There are children crying and no one to care…

They need you, they need me, they need Christ.

And they’ll go on hurting in the world out there,

And they’ll go on dying, drowning in despair,

And they’ll go on crying, that’s unless we care:

They need you, they need me, they need Christ.

“We work together in one spirit,” a Southern Baptist volunteer said, servants of the same Lord, motivated by the same mission.  “And,” he continued as the Baptists headed out to cook the day’s meal, Salvation Army disaster workers to board canteens and feed, “That makes the work easier.” 

Since Hurricane Michael made landfall in October, The Salvation Army, working with partners like the Southern Baptists, has served 755,935 Meals, 384,641 Drinks, 533,185 Snacks and 20,444 Food Boxes in hurricane-impacted areas of Florida and Georgia.  More than 75 mobile feeding units and 2 field kitchens were mobilized at peak operations.  Emotional & Spiritual Care has been provided to 48,099 individuals.  (Statistics as of November 18, 2018)

How You Can Help

Response and recovery operations for Hurricane Michael are expected to be costly and continue for months to come. The best way to help after a disaster is to make a financial donation.  Please support Salvation Army disaster relief efforts by donating:

Transitioning from Response to Recovery After Hurricane Michael in Panama City

Panama City, FL – Since Hurricane Michael made landfall along the Florida Gulf coast on October 10, Salvation Army disaster teams have been mobilized, providing emergency relief to disaster survivors and rescue workers.  As the holiday season nears, The Salvation Army in Panama City is transitioning from response operations and beginning recovery programs.

“There is still plenty of work to be done,” said Major Otis Childs, commanding officer of The Salvation Army in Panama City.  “All you have to do is drive through Bay and Gulf counties to see that damage is still readily apparent.  But The Salvation Army has been serving this community since 1936.  We are not going anywhere.”

With the final day of mass feeding taking place on Sunday, November 18, The Salvation Army will be focused on supporting the recovery process.   The Salvation Army will continue to distribute emergency commodities — ranging from food to hygiene products to cleaning supplies – from its warehouse in Panama City.  These commodities will be shared with community partners, such as schools, churches and community organizations for distribution to disaster survivors.

The Salvation Army will also be providing emergency assistance to families to help them meet critical needs.  “We have always helped families during the holidays,” Childs continued. “Hurricane Michael might have forced us to change some of our traditional Christmas activities, but we will be providing disaster and holiday assistance to those who need help.  We need to make this season brighter for those impacted by Hurricane Michael.”

At the height of the relief operations, The Salvation Army deployed 75 mobile feeding units and two 54’ field kitchens to provide food to communities in Florida and Georgia impacted by Hurricane Michael.  Working with partners such as Operation BBQ Relief and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, The Salvation Army has distributed more than 750,000 meals, 380,000 drinks, and 520,000 snacks.  Working with Therapy Dogs International, Salvation Army emotional and spiritual caregivers provided support to more than 47,000 people.  More than 20,000 food boxes, 6,000 clean-up kits, and 20,000 hygiene kits have been distributed with trained Salvation Army disaster workers and local volunteers giving more than 180,000 hours of disaster relief service to date.

Salvation Army Aids Students in Panama City After Hurricane Michael

Panama City, FL – Yesterday, a trio of Salvation Army disaster vehicles delivered food boxes, hygiene kits and prepackaged meals to A. Crawford Mosley High School in Panama City, FL for distribution to students impacted by Hurricane Michael.  As recovery from the October hurricane continues, The Salvation Army has been operating distribution sites across the Gulf coast region to distribute emergency supplies ranging from food and water to cleaning supplies.

“We received a call from the faculty of the school,” said Bobbi Geery, The Salvation Army’s Logistics Chief.  “Many students — who are just returning to school — are still living in storm-damaged houses.  Many are still without power, water or permanent housing.  The school asked if there was anything The Salvation Army could do to help.”

Help arrived as members of The Salvation Army’s Incident Management Team brought a delivery of 80 food boxes, 50 cases of hygiene kits, and 96 cases of meals-ready-to-eat.  The supplies were quickly unloaded with the help of students from the school, including the members of Mosley’s ROTC program.  The assistance brought tears to the eyes of some faculty members.  “This will be Thanksgiving for some of these students,” one teacher remarked.  The emergency supplies will be distributed by school faculty to students needing assistance.

In addition to delivering supplies to the school, The Salvation Army is continuing to staff other distribution points through Monday, November 19, including a site at FEMA’s Disaster Recovery Center at 898 West 11th Street, Panama City.  To date, The Salvation Army has distributed more 20,087 food boxes, 6,156 clean-up kits, and 20,446 personal hygiene kits across communities impacted by Hurricane Michael.

“Michael devastated Bay County and, for as large as our operation is, it’s impossible for The Salvation Army to reach everyone,” Geery continued.  “But there’s a whole network out there of schools, community organizations and local churches who are also in touch with the hurricane’s survivors.  By sharing our resources with these partners, we can reach many, many more people.”

Salvation Army Service Update for the Florida Panhandle

Tampa, FL (November 13, 2018) – Four weeks after Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida Panhandle, The Salvation Army continues its service to communities impacted by the storm. There is a new normal in many communities. Families are coming home to places they can no longer live. The pre-existing financial struggles of households are compounded by the hurricane. The need for safe, sanitary, affordable housing is greater than ever as many families lost their homes and have to rebuild. Salvation Army officers and staff are at work with community partners to help ease the burdens of the people who are in the most need.

Power is restored in most areas where the infrastructure allows, which means grocery stores are opening and households can now cook and keep food cold. Salvation Army mass feeding has concluded in the Apalachicola and Tallahassee service areas, but local Salvation Army is still at work, helping as it was before Hurricane Michael.  

The Panama City service area of Bay County was the hardest hit. Service there continues and today, 23 mobile feeding units and emotional and spiritual care teams are at work in the area , assessing the needs of the communities as they provide hope and prayer. In some instances the hope they give is through a laugh or a bottle of water; other times the care is a prayer, a Bible, and a shoulder to lean on as folks come back to their destroyed communities and homes.

“We are not just a bottle of cold water or a warm meal. We provide spiritual support and prayer for people whose lives are changed by disaster,” said Steven Hartsook, emergency disaster services director of The Salvation Army of Florida. “We are here to serve in the name of Jesus Christ and will be here as long as we are needed.”

At the peak of service, 45 mobile feeding units and teams from the Southern Territory and leadership teams from across the nation and Canada were serving the areas devastated by the hurricane. To date, The Salvation Army has served:

  • Meals: 657,655
  • Drinks: 323,451
  • Snacks: 458,585
  • Hygiene Kits: 16,053
  • Food Boxes: 12,007
  • Tarps: 9,667
  • Clean-up Kits: 3,774
  • 42,473 emotional and spiritual care contacts with hurricane survivors
  • Salvation Army officers, employees, and volunteers have provided 63,811 hours of disaster service.

Disaster strikes rural towns and big cities, the young, the old, the rich, the poor, and in-between. The Salvation Army is on the ground, serving in the name of Jesus Christ without discrimination.

In the weeks, months, and years ahead we will still be there serving those who need us the most. We can do this because you support us.
