Salvation Army is doing their part to help tornado victims

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_The Lawton Salvation Army is doing their part to help tornado victims. Their disaster kitchen crew is in Moore providing food and drinks to those in need. 

They loaded a truck full of snacks and water Tuesday to replenish their makeshift kitchen that's set up in Moore. They've been there since Monday.  Captain Ernie Hull says his crew was ready and willing to respond to this call for help.

"These are our neighbors and I'm very glad that we were able to help meet just their basic needs. That bottle of water, bowl of soup, a sandwich, whatever they will receive as far as a meal goes a long way to help them in their recovery," said Hull. 

Hull also says if you want to help by donating water or non-perishable packaged snacks, you can drop them by the Salvation Army.  

He says avoid sending any clothing or household items because there is not a need for them at this time.  He says a cash donation to reputable agencies like the Red Cross is currently the best way to give back.
