Salvation Army returns from Texas

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- The Dothan chapter of the Salvation Army has returned to the Wiregrass after helping with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

Captain Chris Bryant came home this past Friday after an 8-day stint along the Texas coast, where he visited locations directly hit by Harvey’s eye wall-- Corpus Christi, Rockport, Bayside, and Port Aransas.

Though catastrophic flooding made headlines in Houston, the areas Captain Bryant visited were damaged by Category 4, hurricane-force winds and devastating storm surge.

Despite being a month into the recovery process, Captain Bryant says debris still lined the streets.

In an article Captain Bryant wrote detailing his experience, he said, “So tonight as you lay in your air conditioned home, enjoying a nice hot shower, gathering around the table and sharing a meal with your loved ones, remember those that are still trying to define a new way of life."

And the people of Texas still need any help they can get.

"We always want to say thank you! Because the Wiregrass helped,” says Captain Bryant. “We saw the donations coming into our office, we saw the donations that went to the national relief, and we can't say thank you enough, because in times like this it takes everyone."
