Record breaking heat is hard on everyone but especially older adults, young children, and persons with chronic medical conditions.
CHANNEL 5 NEWS, SOMOS NOTICIAS, H-E-B and Salvation Army have teamed up to provide fans to those in need but we need your help!
This year, due to sanitation and safety concerns, we are changing the way we are requesting the community’s help.
For one week, July 20 through July 27, CHANNEL 5 NEWS and SOMOS NOTICIAS are asking the public to make a monetary donation directly to the Salvation Army of Hidalgo County and the Salvation Army of Cameron County.
Our partner, H-E-B will match the first $20,000 dollars to help provide families in need across the Rio Grande Valley with more than 800 fans and 60 Air Conditioner units.
Salvation Army will purchase fans, qualify recipients and distribute the fans to those in need. Together we can all help our friends in need.
