Tennessee Region – Salvation Army Prepares for a Greater Need for Emotional and Spiritual Care


The Salvation Army is Continuing to Expand Its Resources In Putnam County, While It Still Serving In Davidson and Wilson Counties.NASHVILLE, TN – March 10, 2020  The Salvation Army has been steadily increasing its resources and services in Putnam County each day since the March 3rd tornadoes tore through Middle Tennessee taking the lives of eighteen of its residents and leaving hundreds displaced. The Salvation Army has been serving hot meals, beverages, and emotional and spiritual care for the past week. However, The Salvation Army has been serving in Putnam County for over 20 years.

“Our commitment to the community is to continue to meet the needs of Putnam County as we move from disaster recovery to long term care,” states Salvation Army Incident Commander, Major Stephen Story. “Social services are what we do, day in and day out, it is only natural for us to this after a disaster as well.”

To date, The Salvation Army has served 5,389 hot meals along with 4,811 snacks and 6,016   beverages.  Over 1,131 individuals have received personal prayer support.

How neighbors can help:

Financial Contributions are needed and most efficient. A cash donation allows charitable relief agencies to use monetary contributions to purchase exactly what disaster survivors need. Monetary contributions are also easy to get to the disaster area. One hundred percent of a disaster donation to The Salvation Army is used for disaster relief efforts for that event. Supplies can almost always be purchased locally at the disaster site and provide savings in multiple ways. Money used to purchase needed items locally can support local and state economies, helping local businesses and workers, which have suffered losses in the wake of the disaster event. If you would like to support efforts, please visit this link to donate.  For the latest updates on our disaster relief efforts, visit disaster.salvationarmyusa.org.
