Salvation Army still needs donations for flood relief

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Donations for Nashville flood relief continue to pour in, but the Salvation Army says it still needs your help.

On Tuesday morning, volunteers packed up another load of supplies headed to the capital city. The Salvation Army says the recovery effort is expected to last six to nine months and the city of Nashville estimates the clean up costs will top $1.5 billion.

"We've moved from the drastic relief efforts, more into the long term recovery efforts," says Jonathan Haskell, Community Relations Director of the Salvation Army. "It's going to be a long time, as people rebuild their homes and get back to the way things were."

Haskell says a great way you can help is by donating gift cards to stores that sell cleaning supplies. For more details on what you can do, click on the link to the Salvation Army's web site below.
