The Salvation Army Mobile Canteen Units are deployed to Constance Bay, Britannia and Cumberland area
In response to expected flooding along the Ottawa River, The Salvation Army has deployed Mobile Canteen Units to three locations in Ottawa, providing food and hydration support to volunteer sandbag teams in Constance Bay, Britannia and Cumberland. Our units will be on site from noon until 4 pm through Tuesday April 23rd, 2019.
Over the last 2 days The Salvation Army has served over 400 meals to volunteers. We thank them for their tireless efforts to support their neighbours.
Reminiscent of the 2017 floods in the Ottawa-Gatineau Region, the City of Ottawa is expecting flooding over the weekend and into next week. As long-standing members of the City of Ottawa Emergency Social Services, The Salvation Army plays an active role in the Ottawa Emergency Plan and is directly engaged with the city’s Office of Emergency Management on a daily basis.
The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services team of trained staff and volunteers is always ready to respond with practical assistance such as food, hydration and clothing, as well as emotional and spiritual support in times of crisis and disaster.
Donations to The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services can be made through the website www.salvationarmyottawa.ca In kind donations are always appreciated through our Thrift Stores as those affected by flood and disaster are directly supported by these donations.
