It’s been a stressful time for many people in Saskatchewan’s southeast suffering from flooding not seen in centuries.

Through it all The Salvation Army continues to support all the victims as well as the volunteers helping with the clean-up.

In Estevan, upwards of 200 evacuees have been fed three times a day at the Community Leisure Centre since the weekend.

And in Weyburn, the Community Response Vehicle (CRV) from Regina has been parked at the local fire hall as the Salvation Army feeds and hydrates the many volunteers taking part in sand-bagging and clean-up efforts.

The Salvation Army would like to give the many outstanding volunteers a big round of applause for all of their hard work during these tense moments.  They are the heart beat of The Salvation Army.

If you’re interested in volunteering contact the local Salvation Army Units in Weyburn and/or Estevan.

Anyone wishing to financially support the efforts of The Salvation Army may do so online at www.salvationarmy.ca/floods2011 or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
