Salvation Army provides flood kits to St. Louis



Cedar Rapids, Iowa – The Salvation Army in Cedar Rapids is giving six pallets’ worth of flood kits to help with the clean-up efforts in St. Louis, which are still ongoing after the city was hit by major flooding.

The kits include a variety of cleaning tools, such as brooms, mops, and bleach.

After receiving assistance for derecho recovery from other Salvation Army partners, Salvation Army Corps Officer Captain Shawn Debaar says it is good to be able to provide their own help to those affected.

“Being able to now, two years after the derecho, as recovery continues, to be in a position to share that with neighbors across over in St. Louis it’s a wonderful feeling, and it’s a highlight of the amazing network and the efficiency of an organization like the Salvation Army,” said Salvation Army Corps Officer Captain Shawn Debaar.
