Less than one week ago a tornado devastated the Ottawa and Gatineau areas, damaging homes and vehicles and sending several people to hospital. Within hours Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Personnel were on the ground providing hot meals and snacks to those without power, as well as emergency responders and hydro workers.

“The Salvation Army will continue to give hope in the days and weeks ahead after Friday’s disaster,” says Glenn van Gulik, spokesperson for The Salvation Army.

In addition to providing meals, The Salvation Army is supporting individuals and families with vouchers for its thrift store for clothing, furniture and household items.

“We are so thankful for the community’s outpouring of support including donating their time, food and supplies, as well as fundraising for those in need,” says van Gulik.

The Salvation Army continues to serve those affected in Dunrobin and in the Arlington Woods and Craig Henry neighbourhoods of Ottawa.
