The Salvation Army is preparing resources and personnel to meet the immediate needs of survivors and first responders affected by Hurricane Ian, which made landfall days after Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico, where The Salvation Army is continuing to serve.
The Salvation Army is positioning resources and personnel to respond to widespread need as efficiently as possible and is seeking support from the local community.
The organization is also continuing to meet the needs of Hurricane Fiona survivors and first responders in Puerto Rico by providing various items from the mainland to Puerto Rico. Trained Salvation Army emergency response teams are on the ground in with meals, water and other services.
“Disaster relief is always about the long game; it’s about helping people to get their homes and their communities rebuilt,” said Captain Kathryn Eisley, Rochester Salvation Army Corps Officer. “It’s also about providing long-term emotional and spiritual care to disaster survivors, as sometimes the recovery on the inside can be harder than the recovery on the outside.”
One hundred percent of designated disaster donations go to direct services for survivors and first responders’ services in Florida and Puerto Rico. Click here to donate.
