The Salvation Army is doing so much to help the victims in Oklahoma. This delivery was the least we could do to help the victims get their lives back to normal.
Rosemount, MN (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
On May 25, 2013, Bay & Bay Transportation delivered 10 military, off-road vehicles to the Salvation Army in Moore, Oklahoma in the wake of last month's devastating tornado outbreak. Polaris Industries Inc. donated the heavy-duty, military fitted ATVs to bolster the relief efforts of The Salvation Army in the area. The vehicles will be used to distribute water, food, and other essential supplies to survivors, emergency teams and clean-up crews who may be unreachable by conventional mobile kitchen units.
“This was a no-brainer! I didn't even have to give this one a second thought,” says Sam Anderson, President and CEO of Bay & Bay Transportation. Bay & Bay delivered the Polaris ATVs to Moore, Oklahoma for free. “The Salvation Army is doing so much to help the victims in Oklahoma. This delivery was the least we could do to help the victims get their lives back to normal.” The Salvation Army is just one of the many charitable organizations that Bay & Bay regularly supports.
As of June 1, The Salvation Army's Disaster Blog reports that, “Since May 19, 2013, The Salvation Army has provided 44,878 meals, 63,678 drinks, and 55,867 snacks, 22 Canteens (mobile feeding units), 3,668 Clean-up and 5,052 Comfort (hygiene) kits, and prayer with 7,218 persons.
