Disaster Services provides mass feeding, personal care items, counseling and referrals for social services for victims of weather related and other disasters. Trained volunteer disaster teams led by Salvation Army staff are available to serve locally and nationwide. Nashville Salvation Army disaster teams served at the World Trade Center, assisted in relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina and Rita within Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas in 2005 and in 2006 and 2008 tornado relief in Sumner, Dickson, Cheatham, Macon, Williamson and Robertson Counties.
Our mobile disaster kitchen also serves 100-300 meals weekly during our Friday night Soup Wagon ministry under the Jefferson Street Bridge. This gives our volunteers the opportunity to not only give back to the Nashville community but at the same time receive the training necessary to serve in times of disaster.
If you would like to volunteer call Anneke Valk at 615-242-0411
