Images from the Frontline
“I don’t know what we’d do without The Salvation Army coming by daily. We have a few snacks, but they are bringing substantial food…something that will stick with you longer. We appreciate everything being done for us.”
While the need is still great, we wanted to share some images and stories from the frontlines of our response in the Carolinas.
Our Deepest Gratitude
We want to express our deepest gratitude to Walmart for their generous contribution of $1.25 million to support The Salvation Army's ongoing response to Hurricane Florence. This generosity will allow us to continue to serve impacted areas and to uniquely assess the needs in each community in which we are serving.
Ways to Help
The Salvation Army is not actively fundraising to support the response to Hurricane Florence. As we continue to assess where and how we can best serve those who need us, we will provide opportunities for you to support our response efforts.
Today, you can help by:
- Ensuring that you are safe and prepared (Visit ReadyNC and the SC Department of Emergency Management for more information)
- Checking with neighbors in threatened areas to ensure their safety
- Praying for all of us who may be affected by the impact of Hurricane Florence
Please check back often for updated information.
Ways to Help
When disasters strike, they can be unpredictable and unrelenting. For those of us fortunate enough not to be impacted, we see images of fellow citizens – just like us in many ways – who need help restoring their lives and getting back on their feet. Across the United States and around the world, The Salvation Army responds to bring basic needs and spiritual care to those that need it most.

Many people wonder about how to best help during times of disaster response. While you can imagine that disaster survivors often lose everything from those clothes to their homes, the best way to help is to provide financial contributions.
Financial contributions are much more easily routed to local disaster areas whereas donated items — such as food, water, and clothing — require more complicated logistics and have associated transportation costs. Your financial gifts also allow The Salvation Army to quickly assess and meet the on-site needs of individuals while helping to provide financial stability to the local economy.
