SALVATION ARMY COUNCIL BLUFFS CORPS EXPANDS FLOOD-RELIEF EFFORTS IN SOUTHWEST IOWA WITH NEW FEEDING OPERATION AND OUTREACH EFFORT

 

The Salvation Army Council Bluffs Corps continues working its flood-relief efforts in southwest Iowa seven days a week—and is branching into new endeavors as it goes.

 

On Wednesday evenings starting May 8, the Corps plans to expand its work in Fremont County with a new outreach effort.  This effort will involve providing emotional-spiritual counseling (ESC) to flood survivors living in mobile housing at Waubonsie State Park near Sidney, Iowa.  

 

Plus:  As of the weekend of April 27-28, the Corps began a new food-service operation in Pacific Junction, Iowa, alongside its ongoing food-service operation in Hamburg, Iowa.  The Hamburg operation will continue daily until further notice, and the Pacific Junction operation will continue on weekends until further notice.  Food-service operations are being conducted in support of local residents’ flood-recovery work.
