Several families in Spencer needed hotel ..., 24 June 2015 [cached]
Several families in Spencer needed hotel accommodations reported Rod Ballengee, regional services coordinator for The Salvation Army. He also reported that the Army provided food and meals for six families in Candor and six families in Newark Valley.
In Ontario County, the Army provided cots for Richmond Volunteer Fire Department in Honeoye. The fire department opened a shelter at the fire hall as over 140 homes were damaged forcing some residents to evacuate and several roads washed out, Rod said.
Rod cited that there was great collaboration with the Christian community in Spencer. He also thanks Service Unit volunteers Alicia Hatch in Candor and Nellie Snap in Newark Valley for reaching out into the community to help.
Rod also shared a heartfelt moment from Saturday's Strawberry Festival in Owego. Rod took one of the Army's mobile feeding units, which is based in Elmira, to participate in the Tioga United Way's parade unit (as the Owego Service Unit receives funding from the United Way). As he drove through the parade route, hundreds of parade watchers filled the streets and all stood, cheered and applauded as The Salvation Army identified mobile feeding unit drove by. Rod said, "I've never experienced anything like this, but Owego residents still remember how Emergency Disaster Services volunteers helped the village during the devastating flood four years ago.

"This volunteer group has made major strides in providing services to the Randolph community and beyond," noted Rod Ballengee, The Salvation Army's field representative for Cattauraugus County.
"Their commitment is demonstrated by the results," said Ballengee. "They have consistently sent children to The Salvation Army's Long Point Camp. This year, they sent 13. The first year they were together as a committee, they sent four."
More than 300 individuals have received assistance over the past 15 years. "That's remarkable for a small community of 2,600," said Ballengee. Services included: food, clothing, medication, utilities and heating.
During the Christmas season, the committee works the Red Kettle Campaign to provide funds for services, said Ballengee.

While other areas like Barker have members of the Masonic Lodge jingling in front of the bank, there have been problems getting help in the other towns, said Rod Ballengee, the Salvation Army representative for Western New York.
"We've asked school groups and service clubs," Ballengee said."For some reason, they're slow in coming."
Ballengee needs help manning kettles outside of local supermarkets, a holiday hot spot as families prepare for special dinners and parties.
USA Eastern Territory : Salvation Army Switches Focus to Long-Term Relief for Gowanda, 13 Aug 2009 [cached]
"We've served over 6,000 meals in the first three day, plus handed out 500 clean-up kits and 20,000 bottles of water," noted Rod Ballengee of The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army has been using two of its mobile kitchenettes (canteens) to provide food service to first responders and rescue crews and deliver food, water and clean-up kits to residents in the hardest hit areas. These relief efforts have reached "600 families so far," according to Ballengee.
Ballengee shared that there's currently a water ban in effect because the local reservoir was compromised by the flooding and that mold is a big concern due to the moisture and warm temperatures.
"So our biggest needs right now are for bottled water, non-perishable food, and cleaning supplies, including bleach, detergent and rubber gloves," Ballengee continued.
Remarking that a "wonderful collaboration" is taking place, Ballengee listed some of the neighboring organizations that are supporting recovery efforts in Gowanda. For example, the Seneca Indian Nation has been providing food and water.
