JOPLIN, Mo (KODE) — After the historic flooding in Nebraska, members from Joplin’s Salvation Army were called in to help.
The Salvation Army of Joplin has been asked to assist with emergency and social services in Omaha, Nebraska.
$400,000 worth of meat and $500,000 of crops were lost in flooding from March storms and continued ice melt.
That’s why two employees will be stepping up to help those in Omaha — providing food, money, hygiene and cleaning supplies.
“It takes a passion for God and to do God’s work,” Evelyn Duvall, Salvation Army Case Manager said. “And that means everybody. You know, at all times. Not just when times are good but when times are bad.”
Duvall and another Salvation Army volunteer will head to Omaha on Monday.
