Westlake Ace Hardware Helps Keep People Cool

June 28, 2016

 

Westlake Ace Hardware knows that summer isn’t all fun for the elderly, those without air conditioning or with medical conditions. The are joining together with The Salvation Army to raise money for fans.  The group of stores will kick off the fan drive with a donation of 475 fans to The Salvation Army. In 2015, more than $56,000 was donated by Westlake customers, equating to more than 3,600 fans, donated at cost, to The Salvation Army.

From June 23 to July 10, each of Westlake’s 92 store locations will participate in the fan drive by asking customers to donate to The Salvation Army at the register.

“Unfortunately, there is always a great need for fans and because many of Westlake locations are centrally located, residents in those communities often suffer from severe summer heat,” said Jeff Curnow, Community Relations Manager, The Salvation Army USA Central Territory. “Because of this partnership, we will be able to provide relief to many needy families.”

If you’d like to contribute to the Westlake fan drive, visit any Westlake Hardware location or donate online at westlakehardware.com/fandrive.
