Abilene disaster relief crews on standby for Hurricane Harvey

Of course you can always deliver a physical check to your local Salvation Army. The unit will be dispatched Monday and first travel to Pensacola where the crew will receive its assigned location in Texas.

Manforte prepared meals for the tens of thousands who lost everything during Hurricane Andrew in Miami. On Sunday afternoon in both Pasadena and Texas City a number of people were transported to The Salvation Army in the back of trucks having been rescued from rapidly rising flood waters. Please join this station and its parent company, E.W. Scripps, in taking action for Texas and giving money to the American Red Cross. An Incident Command Team from Florida will support the relief efforts in Houston by the middle of the week. "They're not doing well, they're not happy, trying to survive, but at least this is one less thing they have to worry about".

"We asked how the Urban League can help, and they said through collection of financial donations", she said.

The Salvation Army also said it has a national network of trained disaster staff and volunteers and a fleet of more than 500 mobile feeding units. The task force team consisted of Tulsa firefighters, Tulsa police, and emergency responders from multiple agencies and municipalities, Tulsa Fire Department Deputy Chief of Operations Michael Atchison said. Donors can also text HARVEY to 80100 to donate $10 to GlobalGiving's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Message and data rates may apply.

The Red Cross is collecting donations through its website. "What food they did have has gone bad so we're now serving breakfast to this community and when we get finished with breakfast we'll start cooking lunch and when we're done with lunch we'll prepare for dinner".

Donation links will also be sent to people who text STORM TO 51555. "People seem trapped and even getting to them is going to be some endeavor".
