July 17, 2015 – (Enid, Oklahoma) The month of July commemorates Home Energy Aid Month, a time set aside to raise awareness about the growing need for utility assistance across the state to help keep families cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The Salvation Army, alongside its energy partners (OG+E, ONG & PSO) also make a special effort to generate donations specifically for energy aid assistance throughout the month.
One of the most immediate ways that The Salvation Army is able to help families stay cool in the summer time is to provide qualifying families with a brand new box fan. As a contribution to the Home Energy Aid Month campaign, The Salvation Army of Enid received a donation of 50 box fans from Jumbo Foods on Thursday.
“These fans couldn’t have come at a better time. Of the 50 fans that were donated, 20 have already been distributed to those who have come to our offices seeking relief from the rising summer temperatures. We are grateful to Jumbo Foods for this wonderful gift,” said Major Ernest Hull, commanding officer for The Salvation Army in Enid, Oklahoma.
