The Salvation Army is accepting money for the relief efforts in Japan, but no in-kind donations.
You can text the words "Japan" or "Quake" to 80888 to make a $10 donation to The Salvation Army Earthquake Relief Efforts.
Currently, 81 active officers and 1,068 Salvation Army employees operate 57 church and community centers, 12 small social service stations, 2 hospitals, and more than 20 institutions serving children, seniors, the addicted, and other at-risk populations in Japan.
The Salvation Army in Japan has three emergency service relief teams operating in areas devastated by the earthquake and tsunami.
At this time there are no reports of any loss of Salvation Army personnel or damage to corps buildings.
The disaster has affected a 2,000 kilometer north-south stretch of Japan.
