Salvation Army prepares to support region

The Salvation Army is ready to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to survivors and relief workers. Emergency Disaster Services from the Kentucky, Tennessee Division (KT) are en route to provide support to the Golden Triangle. In addition, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club in Beaumont has opened its doors as emergency shelters.

A total of 5 mobile kitchens — each with the capacity to serve an average of 1,500 meals per day — and a shower trailer providing clean water will be staged in Lake Charles, La., in preparation for deployment; as soon as the roads clear and it is safe to enter. Additional resources from throughout the country are ready to mobilize and offer additional assistance as needed.
