Systems Are Go for Salvation Army Flood Response in Minot (ND)

June 23, 2011

Minot, ND – With more Salvation Army disaster relief teams from Fargo and the Twin Cities en route, staff and volunteers are providing food, water and emotional support in Minot and nearby cities while flood crews scramble to raise levees. With parts of Minot already underwater, the Souris River is expected to crest this weekend.

“The Salvation Army’s feeding efforts will continue for weeks to come,” said Major Donald Kincaid, Minot Salvation Army administrator. “After the floodwaters recede, we will additionally offer clean-up kits and long-term support.”

“The Salvation Army has served in Minot since 1896,” Kincaid said. “This is our town, too. We are committed to serving this community the best we can, for as long as we are needed.”

Monetary donations:

The Salvation Army needs financial support now for Minot and for ongoing disaster response efforts elsewhere. Donate online at www.salvationarmyusa.org, by calling 800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769). You may designate your gift to the effort in MINOT or wherever we are helping to get people back on their feet.
