DENVER — The FOX31 Problem Solvers and Colorado’s Own Channel 2 are teaming up with the Salvation Army to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Representatives from The Salvation Army will be hosting a live phone bank on Monday from 4 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. and on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The number to call during those hours is 303-218-2339.

Hurricane Harvey has ripped apart homes, knocked out power and left unprecedented flooding across southeast Texas. The flooding is expected to last into this week.

The Salvation Army has deployed 42 mobile kitchens and two field kitchens to Texas. In addition to units already based in Texas, mobile kitchens from Arkansas and Oklahoma were sent to the region over the weekend.

The mobile kitchens can serve an average of 1,500 meals a day.

The Salvation Army also has staged emergency supplies such as cleanup kits, water and food at its disaster center in Arlington, Texas, and at points nearer to the coast.
