With Hurricane Harvey and Irma losing it’s steam, now is the time to go and clean up the mess left behind. The Salvation Army¬†Empire State Division Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) has 47 volunteers ready to go to Houston as part of a relief crew.

Next up, they will deploy seven officers and volunteers to Florida including Retired Major Ron Lee of Broome County, he will deploy with Eastern Territory IMAT 1 as Planning Section Chief to Florida.

The EDS Team will deploy today (9/12) to a staging area in North Carolina and then move to impacted areas in Florida and Georgia. The Salvation Army mobile emergency feeding teams will move through the affected areas to provide food, water, hot drinks, as well as emotional and spiritual support.

This will continue until it is no longer needed. Are you looking to volunteer but not sure where to turn? You can register as a disaster worker with the Salvation Army here.

Can’t volunteer but looking to help? You can always donate online at or by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

You can also text to give at STORM to 51555. It’s great to know that our local Salvation Army is there when disaster strikes.
