Modesto, CA - The Salvation Army is responding to the needs of 65 families affected by the flooding in Modesto. The majority of evacuees who fled the rising floodwaters are residents of two RV parks near the swollen Tuolumne River and in need of food and water.
“We are blessed to be able to assist these families and individuals,” said Captain Dwaine Breazeale, officer at The Salvation Army Modesto Citadel. Going forward, the Army will be using their canteen or mobile kitchen to serve lunch tomorrow.
“Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, we will continue offering care, food, and hydration to help the evacuees,” said Captain Breazeale.
The best way to help disaster survivors is to make a financial contribution. Monetary donations allow disaster responders to meet the needs of disaster survivors. The Salvation Army uses 100 percent of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.
The Salvation Army is responding to the needs of those affected by the overwhelming flooding in many parts of California including San Jose, Salinas, Bishop, Turlock, Modesto, and Hollister. The Salvation Army staff, officers, and volunteers will continue to provide much needed care to a growing number of people.
