Former Augusta Salvation Army officers help in Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Majors Chip and Leisa Hall, former Augusta Commanding Officers, are on the ground in Moore, Okla. working with emergency disaster relief services providing relief to those affected by last night's tragedy.

The Halls served the Greater Augusta Area for five years by overseeing the Family Stores and Center of Hope, and by pioneering the Kroc Center initiative. They were stationed in Oklahoma City during the time of the tornado and both remain unharmed after the storm passed.

The Salvation Army is currently providing hot meals and hydration to the first responders, search and rescue, volunteers and affected families. They are also supporting those in need of spiritual and emotional care in the huge field of devastation. An incident command team is in place supervising our response team and assets.

No gifts-in-kind have been requested at this time. Monetary donations are the most critical need. Donors are encouraged to give online at www.SalvationArmyUSA.org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769).
A text donation of $10 can be made by texting the word "STORM" to 80888. To confirm your gift, respond with the word "Yes."
Donations in the form of checks designated to Oklahoma Tornado Relief may also be mailed to:
