SIOUXLAND SALVATION ARMY OPENS DISASTER RESOURCE CENTER – PROVIDING LOCAL RESOURCES FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY RECENT FLOODING

 

The Siouxland Salvation Army today opened a Disaster Resource Center (DRC) at its Corps building at 1415 Villa Avenue in Sioux City, Iowa. 

 

The DRC is a place for people affected by the recent flooding to come to in order to pick up flood-relief items and get additional support.  The DRC will be staffed by a team of Salvation Army officers and employees. 

 

As people arrive at the DRC, they will meet with a Salvation Army team member, complete a brief intake form, and will then be guided through part of the building where flood-relief items have been organized and placed for ease of pickup.  Among the items available for pick-up (while supplies last):  bottled water, mops, buckets, shovels, rakes, bleach, work gloves, and household cleaning supplies.  A food pantry and financial assistance will be available at the DRC, as well.  People needing flood-relief items will need to bring a photo ID with them. 

 

Donations of flood-cleanup items will also be accepted at the DRC.              

 

The DRC’s hours will be Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.  It will be closed Saturdays and Sundays.

 

The DRC will continue operations until further notice.

 

For more information on the DRC, please call 712-255-8836.
