When Winter Storm Pax hit Georgia last week with major winter weather, The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta was able to reach out a helping hand to those in need of aid. We were able to provide meals and shelter, aid the homeless, and serve first responders. We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who was able to help our neighbors with us.
Here’s a round up of what we were able to do!
- Closely monitor the severe weather situation and put mobile feeding units on standby to anticipate needs.
- Prepared to serve stranded motorists and first responders.
- Provided meals, drinks, and snacks in our 15 shelters throughout Georgia.
- Offered relief through Emergency Canteens and the Red Shield Shelter.
