    The Salvation Army dispatched a disaster services team and mobile feeding unit in response to the mass shooting that occurred during a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

    "I have assured the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office that we are committed to providing food, hydration, and emotional and spiritual care as needed," says Major Bert Tanner, area commander for The Salvation Army in Jacksonville. "Our prayers are with the families who lost loved ones today and all who have been impacted by this tragedy."

    As of Sunday night, The Salvation Army had served 487 meals, snacks, and drinks to first responders, and will continue to provide emotional and spiritual care as needed.
