The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services ready to respond to Hurricane Douglas

HONOLULU (July 23, 2020) – As Hurricane Douglas continues on a track to potentially affect the Hawaiian Islands, The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division today announced that they are prepared to respond with community assistance as needed. The Salvation Army is part of a team of agencies providing assistance during events and is a member of the State of Hawaii Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).

“The Salvation Army has an established presence on Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, and Hawaii, and we are ready to respond in our island communities as needs arise,” said Victor Leonardi, Divisional Director of Emergency Services & Safety for The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division. “During emergencies, the best way the public can help is to provide monetary donations which allows the delivery of the exact relief supplies a community needs. Plus, The Salvation Army uses one-hundred percent of all donations designated ‘disaster relief’ in support of disaster operations.”

Donations may be made online at Hawaii.SalvationArmy.org. Listings of current volunteer opportunities also may be found at Hawaii.SalvationArmy.org.
