Salvation Army in Chattanooga asks for heaters, coats and blankets

The Salvation Army in Chattanooga is seeking donations of heaters, coats and blankets to aide the needy in cold weather.

Spokeswoman Kimberly George says nightly temperatures below freezing have prompted “hundreds of phone calls from neighbors needing supplemental heat to battle the cold.”

Donations of heaters, coats, blankets or money are being accepted at The Salvation Army office at 822 McCallie Avenue in Chattanooga.

Monetary donations can also be made online by visiting or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.

“Our goal is to keep our neighbors 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.”
