SALVATION ARMY RELOCATING OMAHA DISASTER RESOURCE CENTER (DRC) ASSETS TO AREAS OF GREATEST NEED:  SARPY-CASS DRC AND COUNCIL BLUFFS DRC

 

In an effort to concentrate critical flood-relief assets in areas of greatest need, The Salvation Army Western Division is moving flood-relief items from its Omaha DRC to its two other metro-area DRCs—one at Southroads (the Sarpy-Cass DRC), and one in Council Bluffs (the Council Bluffs DRC).

 

“The need is growing at the Sarpy-Cass DRC and the Council Bluffs DRC,” said Major Greg Thompson, Divisional Commander.  “We’re seeing more and more people stopping by those locations and picking up flood-relief items, and fewer people stopping by the Omaha DRC.  So this move is an effort to more efficiently and effectively meet that need.”  Major Thompson added that people needing flood-relief items are encouraged to go to the Sarpy-Cass DRC or the Council Bluffs DRC going forward.

 

As part of this move, the Omaha DRC (near 84th and Center) will wind down its operations this week—and will cease operations at 5 p.m. Friday, April 12.  Until that time, it will remain open to the public—although supplies of flood-relief items there will be limited.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Sarpy-Cass DRC and the Council Bluffs DRC will continue operating until further notice.  Their locations—and their operating hours for this week—are as follows:

 

Sarpy-Cass DRC (in the old JC Penney store at Southroads, 1001 Fort Crook Road, Ste. 250, Bellevue)

  • Monday, April 8:  9 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 9 through Saturday, April 13:  9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
