TORNADO STRIKES CUMBERLAND!!!
What Can We Do To Help?
Once in 2002, and again in 2006, Cumberland County neighborhoods have
felt the devastation, and the terror of a “tornado on the ground”.
As the news breaks, many of us watch glued to television sets that flicker with live drama. We see, hear and read news accounts of real people enduring unimaginable tragedy. There is always a great deal of property loss, and many lives are emotionally destroyed when the storm clears.
It all seems so far away, and yet so very close and personal. We ponder the circumstances and grieve for the victims. We wish for some way-any way-that we could help alleviate their pain.
Even after a disaster becomes “old news,” The Salvation Army remains on the scene, cleaning, rebuilding and helping to restore lives to normal. The Salvation Army offers help, hope and comfort to those in crisis.
