Salvation Army serves thousands of meals during flood fight

The Salvation Army continues to help those assisting in the flood fight.

They have their emergency disaster relief truck set up at the Oakley-Lindsay Center to feed and provide drinks to people sandbagging.

Officials said they’ve also sent out over 6,000 drinks and almost 3,000 meals to several other areas along both the Illinois and Mississippi rivers.

“We’re also serving meals, breakfast and dinner, to the national guard staying at Quincy University. We’ve sent sandwiches over to Canton, Missouri to help them out. We’ve sent some Gatorade to Pike County in Pittsfield and just this afternoon we sent some Gatorade to Hull, Illinois,” said emergency disaster services coordinator Jeremy Koren.

If you want to help, the Salvation Army said the best way is to give monetary donations so the organization can buy more resources to assist in the flood fight.
