The Salvation Army Continues To Serve Patten Towers Fire Evacuees

The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga continues to serve residents displaced by Tuesday evening’s fire at Patten Towers.  Through lunch today, The Salvation Army has served over 1,800 meals and 2,700 drinks, and will continue to serve three meals a day at evacuee shelters throughout the weekend.

One Patten Towers resident stated, “Things could have been a lot worse.  We are so fortunate to have The Salvation Army here to feed us and keep us comfortable.”
