BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Personnel from the Salvation Army in Birmingham have already left to help with the anticipated relief efforts from Hurricane Florence.
Four people, along with a mobile food truck, left on Tuesday. They’ll first go to staging area in Charlotte to meet up with other Salvation Army crews from around the southeast.
The area commander says other people are currently on standby and will go if needed.
“This is part of the reason why the Salvation Army exists. And so it is to meet human need without discrimination when tragedy strikes,” said Major Roger Glick, Birmingham Area Commander.
