Henryville, IN – As the sun came up in Southern Indiana, The Salvation Army continued it’s efforts to serve the victims of yesterday’s devastating tornadoes. In Henryville, The Salvation Army is on scene with mobile feeding units providing food, hydration, and emotional care to survivors and emergency responders. The Salvation Army is prepared to serve up to 1,000 meals a day to those in need. Major Steve Kiger, Commanding Officer on scene, will meet with Emergency Management officials this afternoon to determine what The Salvation Army’s role will be going forward.
The Salvation Army is continuing to provide up to 1,000 meals a day at the New Pekin Command post, and also up to 360 meals a day at the FEMA shelter at Silver Creek High School.

Due to the high expense and time demands associated with delivering your gently-used household goods and clothing (gifts-in-kind), The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that any individual gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area. In times of disaster, our stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. By continuing to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army store, you not only help your community, you help us prepare for future disaster relief needs.
