SALVATION ARMY - When emergencies occur and disaster strikes, whether internationally, nationally or locally, The Salvation Army goes into action! In the wake of what is being called one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States, The Salvation Army has launched one of the largest emergency disaster services relief efforts in our organization's history. And, frankly, The Salvation Army needs the partnership of Good News Corporation and its listeners. An update follows, both nationally and locally, about The Salvation Army's work in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Currently, The Salvation Army is providing relief to residents and first responders in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, New Orleans, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama. Additional Salvation Army mobile food units, called canteens, are staged in surrounding areas and are, and have been, prepared to be deployed to other affected areas once emergency personnel determine it is safe. More than 250 Salvation Army Officers and volunteers are providing aid from these canteens, which, today, number 100 with more planned to be deployed from Salvation Army offices throughout the nation. Additionally, The Salvation Army has staged its two 54-foot mobile kitchens in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama. At present, The Salvation Army is serving 5,000 meals per day from its canteens and 20,000 meals per day from its mobile kitchens. However, The Salvation Army is prepared to serve 500,000 meals per day.
