Townsquare Sunday: Salvation Army
The devastation in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria has been described as life-altering. Months after the storm, rescue workers are still trying to restore that island to what it was. A team from the Salvation Army in New Bedford spent weeks in Puerto Rico after the hurricane, providing people with basic needs and giving hope to those in need. Members of that team join Jim Phillips on this week's Townsquare Sunday to talk about their experiences.
The Salvation Army is still helping residents of Puerto Rico, including those remaining on the island and those who have lost everything and have arrived in New Bedford to find a new start. More than 100 families have coming to the Whaling City, some living with family members already here and others arriving here with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. The Salvation Army is among a team of agencies assisting those families this Holiday Season.
