TALLAHASSEE, FL (October 09, 2020) – The Salvation Army of Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties is joining in the response to Hurricane Delta being organized by the Florida Division of The Salvation Army.
Saturday, 10 October, the canteen will pull out headed west to Louisiana to assist in the feeding and caring for those impacted by Hurricane Delta. Captain Stephan Wildish said, “We are blessed to have this equipment in Tallahassee.” He continued, “The canteen is capable of preparing and serving 1,500 meals three times a day making this a vital part of the response effort of feeding and caring for those impacted by Hurricane Delta.”
Local disaster volunteers just returned two weeks ago from helping in Lake Charles, LA. The Salvation Army has been responding and offering assistance to disaster survivors since The Great Galveston Hurricane in September 1900. To support their response, disaster training is provided every year from June to August to train and certify responders.
