Salvation Army Food Pantries Provide Fresh Produce for Local FamiliesTen Years Later, The Salvation Army Continues to Serve People of the Gulf Coast

ALEXANDRIA, VA (August 24, 2015) – The Salvation Army continues to be a source of hope, stability and service to the residents of the Gulf Coast ten years after the most active and expensive hurricane season in U.S. history. With a presence in every ZIP code in America, The Salvation Army was uniquely positioned to support survivors during and immediately after the storm, and for years following.

The 2005 hurricane season – which included Katrina, Rita and Wilma, three of the most devastating hurricanes in U.S. history – spurred The Salvation Army’s largest emergency disaster response ever in this country. Generous donations totaling $382 million were received to support survivors of the storms; 100 percent of these funds have been disbursed.
