The Salvation Army Continues to Aid in Hurricane Harvey Relief
In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, The Salvation Army is supporting one of the largest disaster relief operations in its history. To date, The Salvation Army has deployed 71 mobile feeding units to Texas. As of August 30, The Salvation Army has served 57,099 meals, 27,224 snacks, and 41,603 drinks statewide in response to Hurricane Harvey.
Salvation Army trained disaster workers are being deployed to the stricken area from across the United States and Canada. The Salvation Army Western Division, based in Omaha, is on standby for man power and equipment. Volunteers are needed. Training is required and there’s no guarantee for deployment to the Gulf Coast, however, volunteers are always needed for future disaster relief operations. Call the volunteer department at 402-898-6000. Visit
for more information or to donate.
Eleven mobile kitchens and response teams, with an average capacity to serve 1,000 meals each day, are providing hot meals, snacks, and hydration in accessible areas of Houston. Response teams supported several communities on Wednesday that, prior to their visit, had not received any assistance and The Salvation Army was the first agency to show up.
One such community was Redwood Heights, Houston. Residents explained that today was the first time the water had receded sufficiently for them to venture out of their homes since Monday. The Salvation Army mobile kitchen was a welcome sight as it pulled into the neighborhood to serve lunch and dinner. More than 240 meals were served in this community in addition to the provision of much needed hygiene products and toiletries.
Additional mobile kitchens are headed for Houston and it is anticipated that food delivery will continue to expand in the coming days as new areas of the city become accessible.
Two shower units brought to Houston from Florida were delivered and installed at the George R. Brown Convention Center today. The shelter, with a capacity to shelter up to 10,000 people, will utilize the shower units for first responders and medical personnel. Captains Rojelio and Rebecca Galabeas, Commanding Officers at the Houston Temple Corps, spent time this afternoon talking and praying with Harvey evacuees in the shelter.
Six Salvation Army locations are continuing to provide emergency shelter to families and individuals who have evacuated their homes:
• Harbor Light Center – homeless shelter for men
• Sally’s House – homeless shelter for women
• Family Residence – homeless shelter for families
• Conroe Red Shield Lodge – homeless shelter for individuals and families
• Pasadena Corps Community Center
CORPUS CHRISTI AREA
In the Corpus Christi/Coastal Bend area, feeding operations continue in the following locations: Rockport, Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Ingleside, Portland and North Corpus Christi. The Salvation Army has also been requested to be responsible for food service at the Red Cross shelter at Tuloso-Midway dome and for the 500 evacuees who will be returning by bus to Corpus Christi in the coming days.
The shelter at the Dallas Convention Center has housed little more than 350 evacuees and this number is expected to rise. The Salvation Army of Dallas Fort Worth provided meals for those staying in the shelter along with staff and volunteers.
ADDITIONAL SHELTER LOCATIONS
The Salvation Army is serving as a last resort emergency shelter in the following locations: Beaumont, Conroe, Corsicana, Dallas-Fort Worth, Lufkin, Pasadena, Temple, Tyler, and Waco.
