With temperatures now dipping below freezing, The Salvation Army has had numerous phone calls from neighbors needing supplemental heat to battle the cold. The Salvation Army is placing a call to the community to donate new space heaters and blankets to help!
"Our goal is to keep people safe and warm in their homes," said Major Algerome Newsome.
"Everyone who shares the warmth through their gifts is showing their deep concern for those in danger of the frigid, life-threatening weather."
Monetary donations are also needed for those experiencing high utility bills from having to keep temperatures warmer in their homes. Donations of heaters, blankets or money are being accepted at The Salvation Army, 822 McCallie Avenue.
