Corporate partners step up to support relief efforts

Initiate long-term recovery efforts
As one of the nation’s major emergency relief organizations, The Salvation Army is on the ground before, during and after a disaster strikes. Immediate response can include providing meals, drinks, snacks, and emotional and spiritual care to evacuees and first responders. In a major disaster, like the Camp Fire of 2018, The Salvation Army can initiate long-term recovery efforts. That may include helping with disaster reconstruction, or rebuilding homes, replacing generators, power poles and septic tanks, and even providing rental assistance.
Corporate Assistance coming in
The Salvation Army would like to thank its incredible corporate partners who have stepped up to support the nonprofit’s immediate and long-term recovery efforts. The Salvation Army has received nearly $100,000 in gifts from corporate partners this month alone for wildfire relief. Among those donations, The Walmart Foundation made a $50,000 donation, Team Depot gave $10,000 and In-N-Out has given $5,000. Donations can be used to help wildfire survivors rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
