The Salvation Army responds to Massive Fire in Edgewater, NJ

The Salvation Army New Jersey Division Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) team is responding to yesterday’s fire in Edgewater, NJ that has left hundreds of residents homeless.

The Salvation Army EDS team will be on hand with a canteen to provide lunch and dinner for first responders. The canteen is able to provide 1500 meals per day and will be set up near the apartment complex on Undercliff Avenue and Winterburn Place.

“During this time, we want people to know that we are here for the community and will continue relief efforts for as long as we are needed,” says Michael Clayton, Director of Emergency Disaster Services.

In addition to the feeding, Salvation Army Officers and volunteers will be available to offer emotional and spiritual support for those who need someone to listen.
