SIOUXLAND SALVATION ARMY FLOOD-RELIEF EFFORT ROLLS ON THROUGH FOURTH WEEK, CONTINUES TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE AS COMMUNITIES ENTER LONG-TERM RECOVERY PHASE

 

The Siouxland Salvation Army Corps continues working hard to provide flood-relief items and a full spectrum of additional support to area communities affected by the Flood of 2019.  

 

The Corps’ latest service totals include the following:  5,952 meals served; 8,862 drinks and snacks served; 10,542 items, including cleaning supplies, distributed; more than $53,000 in financial assistance provided; $6,750 in groceries given away; some 400 individuals assisted; and 1,787 volunteer hours worked.

 

The Corps continues to operate its Disaster Resource Center (DRC) at its building at 1415 Villa Avenue in Sioux City.  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’s hours remain as before: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.  It is closed Saturdays and Sundays.

 

Donations of flood-cleanup items are still being accepted at the DRC; food donations and monetary donations are also greatly appreciated.                                                                                                 

 

The DRC will continue operations until further notice.

 

The Corps team is extremely grateful for the generous support of the entire Siouxland community.
