Choctaw Nation gifts Salvation Army

July 12, 2013

A gift of $50,000 was presented to the Salvation Army from the Choctaw Nation to assist with ongoing relief efforts for victims of the tornados that ravaged the central Oklahoma area this Spring. The money was raised through a week of fuel sales and donations at the Choctaw Travel Plazas in southeast Oklahoma. Profits for that designated week’s gas sales were allocated for the disaster relief.   
“We anticipate that the Salvation Army will be involved in long-term relief efforts for victims of this disaster for up to five years," said Captain Gargis. “And don’t forget – we continue our day-to-day operations regardless of disasters. Our services include a food pantry, shelters, Boys & Girls Clubs, daily community meals and many other programs.”  
Both Gargis and Castle said that donations and volunteers for the Salvation Army were greatly appreciated.
