THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Salvation Army in Thomasville is busy putting storm victims up in motels this week.

The night of the tornado they opened a shelter and housed 18 people overnight. Now twelve families are safe and in local hotels because of the Salvation Army.

They've also provided food and clothing for about 25 people.

"We've been working real well with the Red Cross and other churches to get people in hotels and provide food and clothing and just a shelter until they can deal with their insurance company or find a place to stay for those whose houses have been permanently damaged," said Lt. Matt Cunningham, Salvation Army Director in Thomasville.

If you're a tornado victim in Thomas county and need to contact the Salvation army, you can visit the Social Services office at 514 Madison street, or call them at 229-226-3772. Feedback
