Kansas City, Mo. — Westlake Ace Hardware recently partnered with The Salvation Armyfor the 9th year of a partnership that benefits local communities by providing box fans to those in need. During the fan drive, Westlake Ace customers were asked to donate by rounding up their purchases at the register. In the span of just 18 days, $110,000 was donated at participating Westlake Ace stores nationwide. Westlake then turned customers’ donations into fans, given at cost, and added an additional 700 fans for the charity. In total, nearly 7,300 fans are being donated this summer to various Salvation Army commands to distribute to those most in need.
