The Salvation Army Responds to Western New York Wind Storm

Buffalo, New York - The Salvation Army is serving those affected by wind related damage and power outages in cooperation with Niagara and Erie County Emergency Management. The Salvation Army has opened a shelter at its Lockport center and is assisting at 10 warming centers across Erie County as temperatures drop and people wait for power to be restored. We have resources deployed across the state to assist with operations in the greater buffalo area and will be providing services throughout the weekend.  Those seeking assistance are directed to contact their local emergency management for services in their area.

The Army has also been supporting a warming shelter in Batavia (Genesee County) and will be providing mobile hydration to first responders and utility crews across Genesee County tomorrow.

Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
