Salvation Army in Columbus assists with Hurricane Florence relief in the Carolinas

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Salvation Army in Columbus traveled to the Carolinas to assist with Hurricane Florence relief efforts.

The organization provided meals and spiritual help to those who were impacted by the hurricane. Volunteers gave out 67,000 meals to those in need and provided meals to first responders as well.

“When you see a hurricane, there is no greater time of need to step in and say, we are here, we care about you, and we want to see you taken care of. In a lot of ways, disaster can happen to any of us. We would like to think that there will be someone to respond to help us in any type of situation,” says Josh Henson, commanding officer of the Salvation Army.

The team is stationed in Conway, South Carolina and is working out of Myrtle Beach on Wednesday.
