Salvation Army of Cumberland County

Fri, 03/09/2012 - 11:59pm - Fri, 03/23/2012 - 11:59pm

The storms that went through over the last couple days have left many in our area with loved ones missing and others with homes devastated. The Salvation Army of Cumberland County is dedicated to finding a way to aid these men and women in their recovery.

Once in 2002, and again in 2006, Cumberland County neighborhoods have felt the devastation, and the terror of a “tornado on the ground”.

As the news breaks, many of us watch glued to television sets that flicker with live drama. We see, hear and read news accounts of real people enduring unimaginable tragedy. There is always a great deal of property loss, and many lives are emotionally destroyed when the storm clears.

It all seems so far away, and yet so very close and personal. We ponder the circumstances and grieve for the victims. We wish for some way-any way-that we could help alleviate their pain.

Even after a disaster becomes “old news,” The Salvation Army remains on the scene, cleaning, rebuilding and helping to restore lives to normal. The Salvation Army offers help, hope and comfort to those in crisis.

To find out more information about the recovery or to find out how you can aid in the recovery you can contact the Cumberland County Salvation Army offices by e-calling them at 931.788.3414 or you can follow this link to their website.
