“Our hearts go out to those affected by the devastating floods in Louisiana. Our Customers, employees and communities mean the world to us, and they have all been impacted significantly by this disaster. We're honored to be able to help in the relief and recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast," said Love's Vice President of Communications Jenny Love Meyer.

Canteens from The Salvation Army are going out each day in affected communities to help anyone who needs a hot meal, something to drink or somebody to talk to. The Salvation Army has prepared more than 78,000 meals, 87,700 drinks, 15,600 snacks, 9,300 food boxes, 8,100 clean-up kits and 8,000 comfort kits for those in need so far.

"At The Salvation Army, we believe it takes an army of generous, loving people to help their neighbor in a time of need. It takes individuals, it takes families, and it takes corporations like Love's to stand together with The Salvation Army so we are 'Doing The Most Good' for those who really need it. We truly appreciate Love's and all its employees for the generous donation to help the relief effort," said Maj. Roy Johnson, General Secretary for The Salvation Army's Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi Division.
