DEADLY MUDSLIDE: Salvation Army Team Working With Devastated Families

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - Every year, in ways both large and small, Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) personnel respond to the needs of others impacted by disaster. Whether it is local, small-scale incident or a major disaster, The Salvation Army relief staff and volunteers are often the first on the scene and some of the last to leave.

This week, Salvation Army teams were deployed to provide immediate relief to those impacted by the mudslides in Snohomish County, WA. The Salvation Army sent a mobile canteen (feeding unit) to provide meals and water to the first responders at the disaster. In the future, The Salvation Army will assist in the restoration efforts.

"The Salvation Army has been working in Snohomish County for more than 125 years," reported Major Doug Tollerud, Divisional Commander of The Salvation Army in Washington state. "And we'll continue to serve this community as needed in the future - in good times and in times of disaster."

The most critical need right now is for financial gifts. Here are three ways to contribute to The Salvation Army local disaster relief efforts:

1. By phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY - designate gift for 'Disaster Relief'

2. On-line at: www.SalvationArmyNW.org - designate gift for 'Disaster Relief'

3. By mail: Send a check, marked 'Disaster Relief' to The Salvation Army, Northwest Divisional Headquarters, 111 Queen Anne Avenue N #300, Seattle, WA, 98109

The best way to help during any disaster, large or small, is often to make a financial contribution. Cash donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors without incurring many of the costs associated with sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods.

Salvation Army disaster services are funded entirely by donors, and The Salvation Army uses 100% of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.

Here's what your gift helps provide:

:: $35 donation provides one food box, containing staple foods for a family of four, or one household cleanup kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets and other cleaning supplies

:: $125 donation can serve snacks and drinks for 125 survivors and emergency staff at the scene of a disaster

:: $250 donation can provide one hot meal to 100 people or keep a hydration station operational for 24 hours

:: $500 donation keeps a Salvation Army canteen (mobile feeding unit) fully operational for one day

According to news sources today, 14 people are confirmed dead and 176 are un-accounted for. Please keep these individuals and their families in your prayers.
