Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte Deploys Crews To Coastal Areas Impacted By Dorian

CHARLOTTE, NC — The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte has deployed its mobile feeding kitchen and trained disaster personnel to Washington, NC, to help in areas directly impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Other Salvation Army units are already serving in coastal communities, and others are deploying across the Carolinas to support those efforts. Each unit is prepared to serve up to 1,500 meals with supplies initially on hand. The crew is prepared to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual care to individuals and families impacted by the storm and first responders.

“Just like everyone across the Southeast and the nation, we’ve been watching the track of this storm and praying for the safety of those in its path,” said Major Larry Broome, area commander for The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. “The Salvation Army is responding and ready to help in any way we can. For now, it’s providing a meal, a bottle of water, and encouragement for those who have been impacted.”
