Salvation Army Kicks Off Beat The Heat Campaign

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

The Salvation Army caseworkers are offsetting high utility bills and distributing free box fans and water to those in need.   

“The Salvation Army’s Hamilton County assistance fund for utility bills is now out,” says Salvation Army Social Service Director Sandy Leavell.  “We desperately need more funding in order to continue to meet the high demands.”  

The Salvation Army is also accepting new boxed fans and bottled water to give relief from the heat to many in the community.

If you or someone you know is in need of a fan, please call 756-1023.  Those in need of a cool drink of water may visit the hydration station at 800 McCallie Ave.  Passersby will be able to quench their thirst from 9-11 a.m. and 1-5 p.m. every day that the temperature exceeds 90 degrees.   

Chattanooga residents may deliver new box fan donations to The Salvation Army at 822 McCallie Ave.  Cleveland residents can deliver new fans to The Salvation Army at 435 Inman St.   

Monetary gifts may also be dropped by or mailed to 822 McCallie Avenue and are accepted online at www.csarmy.org or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.  For more information about the Chattanooga Salvation Army please visit www.csarmy.org, Facebook and Twitter.
