PEORIA, Ill. – The Salvation Army is continuing its efforts to help residents affected by flood water.

As of noon on Friday, the Salvation Army has distributed more than 15,000 meals, drinks and snacks and more than 1,200 clean up kits. Most of those resources were provided to residents in the hard-hit community of Marseilles, Ill.
 
Salvation Army officials say the Sylvia Fites Center in Peoria has conducted 20 client interviews and has given 21 referrals to other agencies. They have also assisted 22 people with bus passes, blankets, sheets, pillows, clothing and grocery orders.
