The Salvation Army’s Christmas presence is back downtown after a lapse of more than 30 years of always being at the corner of 8th Street and Broad Street, the old American National Bank plaza. It has moved 1.5 blocks to 109 E 8th St., Herman Walldorf & Company Realtors for an easy ground floor drop off.
Walldorf, the oldest family name in Chattanooga real estate, has been domiciled downtown since 1926, so it has a strong commitment to the heart of the city, said officials. Walldorf’s office receives cash donations in its Salvation Army Kettle, canned goods for the Army’s needy pantry, blankets, and unopened hotel toiletries for the homeless Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. until Christmas. Its agents will be available to assist in collection. Walldorf & Co. agent contacts can be found at Walldorf.Realtor.
The telephone for Walldorf & Co is 756-2400. The location is between Georgia Avenue and Walnut Street at 109 E 8th St., the center of the block.
“Please help us support the Salvation Army in all that it does year round, not just at Christmas, for the less fortunate in our wonderful city of Chattanooga. This is how we can give back as a community," said Nathan Walldorf, secretary treasurer at Herman Walldorf & Co., Inc.
