Tulsa, Oklahoma (June 8, 2019) – In any circumstance, good or trying, partnerships are vital. The Salvation Army is grateful during times of disaster strong partnerships exist. Two such partners, Tyson Foods and J.B. Hunt generously donated 20,000 lb. of chicken as well as the loan of a refrigerated trailer and transportation to help The Salvation Army’s disaster relief efforts in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
The donation will be put to good use feeding survivors, volunteers, and first responders in areas affected by catastrophic flooding. Sherri Johnson, Corporate Social Responsibility, Tyson Foods, says “Tyson is proud to support The Salvation Army and the relief it provides to all of those impacted by the historic flood.”
