The Salvation Army Deploys to Assist Storm Survivors in Maury County

[Nashville, TN] (May 10th, 2024) – The Salvation Army is deploying today to assist survivors from this past Wednesday’s tornado. They will be serving meals to first responders and survivors as well as offering emotional and spiritual care to any who need it.

“We received the request to assist yesterday evening and we immediately began coordinating staff and resources so we could be in Columbia this morning to serve breakfast from our mobile canteen. We are planning to serve three meals a day and will continue to serve until the need is met. Our prayers are with those who were affected by the storm and those who have been tirelessly conducting search and rescue efforts to locate any still missing,” Captain Philip Canning, Incident Commander for The Salvation Army in Nashville.

There will be fixed meal site at Howell Elementary School (653 Bear Creek Pike, Columbia, TN) and a roving meal unit traveling in the affected areas of the community. Mealtimes will be:


Breakfast: 9:00am

Lunch: 12:00

Dinner: 5:00
