Salvation Army to Provide Furniture to Apartment Fire Victims

Robert Snyder, KFYO.com

The victims of an apartment complex fire in Lubbock yesterday will receive new furnishings.

The Salvation Army of Lubbock and Aaron’s Inc. have partnered to provide each household affected by yesterday’s fire at the Briercroft Apartments in the 1300 block of 65th Drive with $1,000 in new furniture.

For each household, the Salvation Army will provide $500, and Aaron’s will match the amount.

Victims will also receive clothing vouchers redeemable at the Salvation Army Family Thrift Store. The vouchers generally include 10 shirts, 10 pants, shoes, and undergarments, as well as household items such as dishes, kitchen utensils, and small appliances.

“During the disaster, the role of the Salvation Army is to care for the immediate physical and spiritual needs of the first responder and survivors,” said Major Mike Morton, corps officer for the Salvation Army of Lubbock.

“After the disaster, our focus turns to creating long term, sustainable care for the survivors. We work with them for months following the incident to help them rebuild.”

During Tuesday’s fire, the Salvation Army’s Disaster Alert Response Team provided 240 meals and 200 drinks and snacks to first responders and victims at the scene, as well as provided shelter for one of the residents displaced by the fire.
