Salvation Army offers ways to help victims


The Salvation Army Northeast Ohio Division is preparing to aid those in the path of Hurricane Florence and is offering these tips for local residents who want to do the same.

In times of disaster, financial contributions are the best way to help. A cash donation allows charitable relief agencies to purchase exactly what disaster survivors need.

Monetary contributions are also easy to get to the disaster area. Supplies can almost always be purchased locally at the disaster site and provide savings in multiple ways. Finally, money used to purchase needed items locally can support local and state economies and help local businesses and workers, which have suffered losses in the wake of the disaster event.

Here are ways to donate:

  • Online:
  • Donate by phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY
  • Mail checks to: The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1959, Atlanta, Ga. 30301. Please designate “2018 Hurricane Season” on all checks.
