Regina, SK – Whenever disaster strikes, the presence of The Salvation Army personnel is always expected. That’s exactly what is being done in the communities of Weyburn & Estevan.

With flood levels in South Eastern Saskatchewan at a critical stage The Salvation Army’s Emergency Response team is supporting efforts.

In Estevan, workers are helping feed roughly 150 evacuees at the Community Leisure Centre. That includes three meals per day. And in Weyburn, the team has dispatched the Community Response Vehicle (CRV) from Regina and is helping feed and hydrate volunteers responding to the flooding.

The Salvation Army is also providing some form of spiritual & emotional care for victims devastated by the flooding.

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.

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