Hurricane Harvey has caused widespread damage across Texas. Salvation Army disaster teams from across the country are providing physical, emotional and spiritual care to survivors and relief workers.
Even after disaster response efforts are over, The Salvation Army will remain in communities impacted by this terrible storm, supporting long-term disaster recovery efforts and providing ongoing assistance to those in need.
On Friday, NBC10 and the Salvation Army teamed up to raise money for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
We are happy to report that thanks to your generosity we were able to raise more than $87,671. All money raised will go directly to relief efforts in Texas.
Hurricane Irma is considered to be one of the most serious hurricane threats to Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Between Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, The Salvation Army will need and deploy more personnel than on any other weather event in the organization’s history. With a presence in every zip code in the United States, The Salvation Army is uniquely positioned to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
“Response efforts to these catastrophic weather events will be costly and last for years,” said Lt. Col. Ron Busroe, The Salvation Army’s National Community Relations and Development Secretary. “With generous public support, The Salvation Army will be here to help the millions affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma for as long as they’re in need.”
100 percent of designated gifts will be used in support of those affected by both weather events.
