St. Louis, Mo.– The Salvation Army has been active throughout the Midland Division in response to the spring floods. Multiple Canteen operations are active throughout the division in the St. Louis area and southern Missouri (weather permitting) serving meals, snacks, drinks, cleanup kits, and the occasional Band-Aid. Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARCs) will be setup in the coming days and weeks to provide financial assistance, cleanup kits, etc., for those affected by the floods.
