Louisville Metro Emergency Services and the Office of Resiliency and Community Services are working with disaster relief agencies to identify flood victims and organize volunteer cleanup teams. Our partnering agencies include the Salvation Army, Red Cross, Metro United Way 2-1-1, and Kentucky Emergency Management. The Salvation Army is accepting donations of cleaning supplies at its 911 South Brook Street campus. Items most needed at this time include the following:
Bleach (82 Ounces)
Household Cleaners (Windex, 409, etc.)
Disinfectant Dish Soap
Heavy Duty Garbage Bags
5 Gallon Buckets
*Note*- For those able to donate large scale donations (Pallets), please call (502) 671-4900 to arrange pick-up and/ or delivery of those items.

As with all disasters, financial donations are the most effective because they offer tremendous flexibility in how that can be used to support the relief operation and those immediately affected by disaster.

By mail, please make checks payable to The Salvation Army of Louisville and note in the memo line “Disaster Relief”. Mail checks to The Salvation Army, 911 S. Brook St., Louisville, KY 40203.
