Chattanooga, TN – The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga was first called upon to serve breakfast to fire crews on Thursday November 10th to the command center on Little Bend Road in Hamilton County, TN. Since last week, The Salvation Army has placed staff and volunteers on stand-by to continue to assist crews who continue to battle wild fires in TN and GA. Currently, The Salvation Army is loading snacks and beverages to take to the Dade County, GA Command Post to assist between meals.

“Meeting needs, physically, emotionally and spiritually is something The Salvation Army does every day, including at times of disaster,” says Major Robert Lyle, Area Commander of The Greater Chattanooga Salvation Army. “The community entrusts us to ‘do the most good’ with their resources and we will continue to do so until we are no longer needed. Please also join us in prayer for those affected by the wild fires and for those fighting these fires.”

Donations are needed to continue support and can be made online at http://give.salvationarmyusa.org/tennessee_wildfires, by phone to 1-800-Sal-Army or by mailing The Salvation Army at 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403. .
