While many areas in Florida remain inaccessible due to Hurricane Ian’s storm surge, flood waters are slowly receding in others. Neighborhoods that were previously cut off are finally able to receive service.
The Salvation Army teams on the ground in Florida are using Polaris off-road vehicles this week to distribute meals in neighborhoods still not accessible to larger vehicles.
Salvation Army teams loaded each Polaris with water and boxed lunches before heading out in search of people in need.
To date, the salvation army has distributed 33,048 meals and 29,086 drinks in Florida. Services will continue to increase as more and more communities become accessible to service. The Salvation Army of El Paso is on standby.
