The Salvation Army Galveston County Supports Evacuees

As Hurricane Harvey rapidly moves towards the Texas coastline The Salvation Army Galveston County continues to prepare to provide relief and assistance to those in the path of the storm.

Galveston County is expected to welcome 200-250 evacuees from the Bolivar Peninsula. The Salvation Army Galveston County will be providing dinner tonight at 6 pm and breakfast tomorrow morning at 8:30 pm at the American Red Cross shelter located at Abundant Life Christian Church in LaMarque.

“Having received a fresh supply of drinking water and clean up kits from our state headquarters in Dallas, we are prepared to meet the needs of our community,” said Capitan Patrick Jones. “We are in contact with city emergency management departments, United Way, American Red Cross, and others and we will meet needs as they arrive.”

Residents and/or evacuees wanting shelter from Hurricane Harvey can find shelter and meals at Abundant Life Christian Church.

“We are committed to serving in this community as long as there are needs.  We are thankful for the emergency response team of The Salvation Army who will be serving along the entire Gulf Coast during and after this storm,” said Captain Patrick Jones.
