Salvation Army assisting Rhea, Bledsoe Co. flood victims

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga plans to take flood relief kits to Rhea County and Bledsoe County.

Due to rising flood waters, residents in Morgantown and Pikeville experienced flooding and now need help with clean up.

A Salvation Army team is bringing flood relief kits for the residents affected and plans to assist with clean up.

Each flood relief kit contains a mop, broom, bucket, bleach, gloves, sponges, squeegee, mask, cleaning brush, and garbage bag.  Each kit costs The Salvation Army $26.50.

They will also assess damage to better determine the need for future assistance.

The Salvation Army is accepting donations to offset the cost of the kits. Donations can be made online at www.csarmy.org, by phone to 1-800-Sal-Army or by mailing The Salvation Army at 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403.  

The Salvation Army also asks for you to pray for the residents of Rhea County as they clean up from this flooding.

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been helping those in need for 133 years. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. Eighty-two cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
