MONROE, La. -- More help is on the way for tornado victims form the ArkLaMiss. Salvation Army workers are sending a mobile kitchen to Mississippi.

The Salvation Army of Monroe normally serves northeast Louisiana. But, on Monday, teams began packing food to send to storm victims in Louisville, Mississippi. Their mobile kitchen, called a canteen, can serve up to 500 meals a day.

"We're driving our canteen up, going to drop it off, and they're going to supply the team sit there and serve meals," mentioned Lt. Jennifer Williams with the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army is responding to severe weather aftermath from Arkansas to the Carolinas.

"We were lucky. We were very fortunate here in northeast Louisiana. So, we're able to pitch in and help the other areas that weren't so lucky," said Williams. "Jesus calls us to help others. And that's what we're called to do."

The organization asks for monetary donations as well. 

"You can text 'storm' to 8088 to do an automatic $10 donation," commented Williams. "Or you can call 1-800-SAL-ARMY and donate whatever you wish. Or you can drop by the office & drop off a check."
