Salvation Army and local business helps Chattanooga area families Beat the Heat

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – More Chattanooga-area families can beat the heat this summer, thanks to the Salvation Army and a very generous donation.

Action Air gave the Chattanooga Salvation Army a check this afternoon for $2,500.

The money will be used to buy more fans for the Beat the Heat campaign.

To date, the Salvation Army has given out 102 fans and officials say the need has increased for fans this week.

Kimberly George serves as Marketing and Development Director for the Chattanooga Salvation Army. She explained, “We could not do all that we do without the help of the community and without the folks like Action Air, so the Salvation Army would like to say a big thank you to Action Air and all of those who are donating. We cannot do the most good without you, it takes all of us.”

You can help your neighbors Beat the Heat by donating new box fans to the Chattanooga or Cleveland locations.

Monetary gifts may also be dropped by or mailed to 822 McCallie Avenue and are accepted online or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.

If you or someone you know is in need of a fan, please call 423-756-1023.
