Send a link to a friend

[February 05, 2010]  As of Wednesday, a total of $1,306.51 has been received locally from residents of Logan County and designated specifically for Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services relief work in Haiti following the Jan.12 earthquake. Of this, $411.51 was received in cash.

All of these designated donations will support Salvation Army relief and recovery efforts as the organization continues to work in several areas of Haiti, both in Port-au-Prince and in outlying hard-hit areas. Disaster funding received is always kept separate from ongoing Logan County program funding.

Special thanks goes to Lincoln IGA for allowing The Salvation Army to place a special kettle Wednesday for Haiti relief and recovery. Thanks also to Karen and Jerry Birdwell for staffing the special collection.

Many others have already given to the relief work by phone, online and by texting. With donor support, The Salvation Army will continue to provide earthquake survivors with food and non-food necessities, medical care, and assistance in the Haiti recovery efforts for months and years to come.
