Salvation Army unites to help flood victims

Hastings, Neb. - (KSNB) Salvation Army units are coming together as people affected by flooding in central Nebraska look to get back to normal. While the Kearney Salvation Army was providing a gathering place as flood waters rose, the Hastings group was providing support.

Major Dale Brandenburg of the Hastings Salvation Army said they have sent 90 flood relief kits to Kearney. The kits have materials to help with clean up.

Brandenburg says the Salvation Army is proud of their reputation as a entity that helps others.

"We look to people knowing that at times like this, we're here and we're ready to go and we're going to help in any way we possibly can," said Brandenburg.

Another program now going for the Hastings Salvation Army is their summer mobile feeding program. Free meals are provided to anyone that needs one Monday through Friday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m while parked on H Street near Sonic and from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. near Smitty's Trailer Court.
