Salvation Army Carolinas Assessing Community Needs Along Coast

Charlotte, N.C. (September 6, 2019)—Salvation Army commands from the North and South Carolina coastline are assessing the needs in their communities today as the track of Hurricane Dorian continues a path along the North Carolina coastline. Wind, storm surge, rainfall, and the threat of tornados continue as a Hurricane Warning remains in effect for portions of the North Carolina coast.

Currently, power outages across the two states are significant; however, crews are working tirelessly to restore these outages. Three mobile feeding units in Charleston, South Carolina will begin roving through communities to provide food and drinks to people without power. The Salvation Army continues to receive requests from local emergency management partners as the day progresses and unmet needs are realized.

During a disaster, pre-existing partnerships and relationships are essential to meeting the needs of people who are in the most need. Salvation Army officers and staff work long before disaster strikes to begin and maintain these relationships. The Salvation Army will continue to partner with local and state government and agencies as communities continue to assess impacts from the storm.

Ecclesiastes 4:9
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow.
