The Salvation Army Continues Support  to Southeast Oklahoma

Oklahoma City, OK (November 7, 2022) – McCurtain County in Oklahoma is still cleaning up from tornadoes that touched down in multiple locations in southeast Oklahoma on Friday evening, November 4. Emergency management estimates about 200 structures were damaged in the storm. The Salvation Army of Arkansas-Oklahoma continues outreach with meals and emotional and spiritual care support while standing by to address the unmet needs of the community. 

“There is a need for help for the affected families and the community is responding in a wonderful way with resources,” said Laurie Fried, Emergency Disaster Services Director for the Arkansas-Oklahoma Division. “The Salvation Army continues to coordinate with local government officials as well as voluntary agency (VOAD) partners to ensure quick and effective service to our hurting neighbors.” 

The Salvation Army has served more than 450 meals, 400 drinks, 1,100 snacks, and has provided emotional and spiritual care to 45 people.
