Salvation Army Disaster Recovery Center is in Operation at Camp Joy

Chattanooga, TN ( March 7, 2012) – The Salvation Army continues to “Do the Most Good” by providing immediate needs for those Harrison, Tennessee residents affected by last week’s tornadoes.  Basic necessities being provided include food, water, toiletries and baby items, as well as recovery and clean-up supplies like tarps, rakes and gloves.  The Disaster Recovery Center is located at Camp Joy, 6621 Hunter Road, Chattanooga, TN 37341.  

The Salvation Army has been providing nourishing meals and spiritual support to the local neighbors since the tornados swept through on Friday.  To date, they have served 2,330 hot meals, 2,374 beverages and provided emotional/spiritual care to more than 500 individuals.  The Salvation Army plans on continuing its mobile feeding throughout the weekend and then will re-evaluate the needs of the area. 

Many residents, however, are still in need.  Monetary donations are the best way to help both tornado survivors and rescue workers.  The Salvation Army asks that you donate at www.csarmy.org; call 1-800-SAL-ARMY; or text “storm” to 80888 for a $10.00 gift on your phone bill.  100% of your gift will go to the relief efforts. For a list of items needed for recovery efforts please visit www.csarmy.org.
