Temperatures are on the rise and The Salvation Army of Kansas and Western Missouri needs help restocking its supply of fans to help those in need beat the heat this summer.

A monetary donation can be made toward fans at all Kansas City-area Westlake Ace Hardware locations. A $20 donation covers the cost to donate a fan, and donations of any amount will be accepted. The Salvation Army will distribute fans locally throughout the summer to qualified individuals. Westlake Ace Hardware is kicking off the fan drive with a donation of 100 box fans.

The drive runs through June 24, and donations can be made at all area Westlake Ace locations. For more information on eligibility and to receive a fan, contact The Salvation Army at 816-756-1455 or visit www.SalArmyMOKAN.org.
