The Salvation Army continues its work serving the hardest hit areas of the state after a series of powerful tornadoes struck Ohio.
The SWO Division has been responding since day one across the impacted areas with several areas suffering significant damage, the hardest hit area being in the greater Dayton area. The Dayton Kroc Center is currently being utilized as the central feeding hub for its response efforts, with 4 feeding canteens being supported across the areas of impact. The Kroc Center in cooperation with local Emergency Management is ramping up as a distribution site, particularly for bottled water and other resources.
Teams of trained Salvation Army Emotional and Spiritual Care personnel are being assigned to each of the canteens to help with the multitude of emotional or spiritual issues survivors may experience.
At this time, they have an additional three canteens on standby (one from within the SWO Division and one from Toledo). Additional resources are not being requested currently, but may become necessary over the coming days.About The Salvation Army
