Salvation Army to make $142,850 donation to Bradley County

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -– Over one year after the deadly tornados that swept through the Tennessee Valley, The Salvation Army is still on the front-lines serving the unmet needs of storm survivors.   

On Wednesday, August 1st, The Salvation Army will present a check of $58,700 to the Bradley County Schools for assistance serving the Michigan Avenue Elementary and Blue Springs Elementary Schools.  The check presentation will take place during the Bradley County teacher in-service meeting located at The North Cleveland Church of God, 335 Eleventh Street NE at 8:00 a.m.   

On Thursday, August 2nd, The Salvation Army will present a check of $84,150 at the ground breaking ceremony of a home being rebuilt located at 1405 Lee Street SE.  The check will be presented at the 11:00 a.m. ground breaking ceremony to the chair of the Bradley County Long Term Recovery Organization, Jim Pollier.   

The Salvation Army began serving survivors immediately after the first tornado swept through the Southeast and continues to serve today!  Because The Salvation Army commits to spending 100 percent of the money raised for a disaster on that disaster, The Salvation Army is able to assist with long term recovery needs.  

Though only $380,000 was raised locally, money poured into The Salvation Army's territorial offices allowing the local Salvation Army to commit to $1.5 million dollars for the April 2011 Tornado Relief efforts.

    Amazing Weather Settling In

    Good Wednesday.  Today is special because it marks the first day we see our average temperature start to recede.  The average high for yesterday's date was 90.  The average high for today's date is 89. As we progress through today we will notice our humidity levels dropping and skies clearing.  Temperatures will also be about 5 degrees lower than yesterday (93 was the high in Chattanooga Tuesday).  The bottom line: awesome weather is settling in.
