Salvation Army Disaster Response Recalled From Decades Past

In May 1975 a devastating tornado changed the lives of Carol and her family. The Salvation Army were soon on the scene, and in fact had parked the canteen on Carol's parents driveway (see photo). Carol recalls that she remembers the tornado changed everything for her as an eleven year old kid. During this time of uncertainty she can remember getting all of her meals, drinking water, milk (and candy!) from The Salvation Army. 

Today Carol is saying "I cannot thank The Salvation Army enough;  you were there every day during the clean up, and at times were the only reliable source for help, food and information."

Carol has recently made a monetary donation to the Oklahoma Tornado Relief, enabling The Salvation Army to provide sustenance, emotional and Spiritual care to those affected.

You are invited to do the same.
