Keeping Cool: Salvation Army Thanks Community for Fan Donations

BLOOMINGTON - As the weather heats up, hundreds of McLean County residents now have a fan to stay cool.
BLOOMINGTON - As the weather heats up, hundreds of McLean County residents now have a fan to stay cool.

The Salvation Army recently wrapped up its annual drive, collecting nearly 350 box fans for people in need.

WMBD-31 caught up with the organization at the start of its campaign this summer.

At that time, donations had been scarce, causing staff to worry they wouldn't be able to meet the demand.

But Salvation Army Development Director Aly Wrezinski says shortly after WMBD-31 took action, support began to blow in.

“A day after the interview went up on the evening news we got a $1,000 donation from one of our regular donors calling in and saying they wanted to ensure people did not go without a fan this year,” said Wrezinski.

The Salvation Army plans to continue its annual collection drive, and thanks the community for its continued support.
