Help Given to Over 250 Shelter Residents and First Responders

3 Sep 2010

Charlotte, NC – Residents, vacationers and first responders along the North Carolina Coast sought refuge from Hurricane Earl and were fed by The Salvation Army at emergency shelters in Beaufort, Carteret and Pamlico Counties. Before Earl delivered its punch, The Salvation Army arrived on-site early Thursday following requests from North Carolina Emergency Management officials. As of early Friday morning, more than 250 individuals had been served. The Salvation Army expected meal service to shelter evacuees to conclude with breakfast on Friday morning as shelter closings will eliminate the need for additional feeding.

As hurricane season reaches its peak, The Salvation Army is encouraging residents to prepare an evacuation plan and emergency supply kit. North Carolina residents can go to ReadyNC.org for tips on developing a family preparedness plan. South Carolinians can go to SCEMD.org for help.

The Salvation Army is accepting monetary donations at this time to help meet the immediate needs of those affected by Hurricane Earl. Call 1-800-SALARMY to give now.
