SIOUXLAND SALVATION ARMY OPENS DISASTER RESOURCE CENTER – PROVIDING LOCAL RESOURCES FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY RECENT FLOODING
The Siouxland Salvation Army today opened a Disaster Resource Center (DRC) at its Corps building at 1415 Villa Avenue in Sioux City, Iowa.
The DRC is a place for people affected by the recent flooding to come to in order to pick up flood-relief items and get additional support. The DRC will be staffed by a team of Salvation Army officers and employees.
As people arrive at the DRC, they will meet with a Salvation Army team member, complete a brief intake form, and will then be guided through part of the building where flood-relief items have been organized and placed for ease of pickup. Among the items available for pick-up (while supplies last): bottled water, mops, buckets, shovels, rakes, bleach, work gloves, and household cleaning supplies. A food pantry and financial assistance will be available at the DRC, as well. People needing flood-relief items will need to bring a photo ID with them.
Donations of flood-cleanup items will also be accepted at the DRC.
The DRC’s hours will be Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. It will be closed Saturdays and Sundays.
The DRC will continue operations until further notice.
