Salvation Army Providing Meals in Napa for Third Straight Day
Napa, CA (August 26, 2014) - For the third consecutive day, The Salvation Army is serving meals to residents and first responders in the Napa area.
Several Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) canteens are still stationed at multiple sites throughout Napa, including the evacuation center (Crosswalk Community Church, 2590 First Street) and the City of Napa Corporation Yard (770 Jackson St.). Another team is serving residents at a mobile home park (4421 Solano Ave.).
The meal distribution has also been helped by a truckload of water donated by Raley’s Family of Fine Stores.
In all, The Salvation Army has served more than 3,300 meals in Napa since the assistance started Sunday morning.
In Vallejo, an EDS team also served lunch today at First Baptist Church, a location that was red-tagged, or deemed unsafe to enter, by city officials. A canteen was set up to distribute more than 150 meals to the homeless, a service that is typically provided by the church.
Monetary donations are needed to help The Salvation Army assist those affected during the short-term and long-term recovery. The Salvation Army uses 100% of disaster donations in support of local disaster relief operations.
