Indianapolis- The Salvation Army will begin its third week of flood relief by serving meals to families who have been displaced by the recent flooding in Mooresville and Martinsville. Starting tomorrow, Salvation Army Canteens will serve daily meals to approximately 200 people being housed in the following local hotels:
- Lost Inn – 100 Hopkins Trail E. Mooresville, IN 46158 (3 meals)
- Holiday Inn Express – 2233 Burton Lane Martinsville, IN 46151 (lunch & dinner)
- Super 8 – 55 Bills Blvd. Martinsville, IN 46151 (3 meals)
The meal service will continue for at least one week. Because this latest service will once again stretch The Salvation Army’s resources, the organization is asking for volunteers to assist in serving the meals. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Elizabeth Wilhelm at 317-224-1010. The Salvation Army is also asking for any local restaurants or caterers interested in providing meals to contact Kristen Grills at 317-224-1019.
