The Salvation Army received a $5000 donation from Kleenheat Gas through its Regional Care Services Program on Wednesday, August 27.
The donation handover was made by Kleenheat Gas representatives Martin Caldwell and Martin Day and accepted by Salvation Army Lieutenants Peter and Gail Sweeney.
Mr Caldwell said the donation would help Salvation Army continue its important service.
“Kleenheat Gas is proud to provide this donation of $5000 to the Salvos in Whyalla,” he said.
“This will allow them to continue assisting regional communities in need, which is very important work for the local community.”
The money will go towards the Salvation Army’s Community Support Services program and will see seven split system air-conditioning units be installed.
The Community Support Services program provides a safe environment for marginalised families and individuals and currently supports 80 people in the Whyalla community.
Lieutenant Peter Sweeney said with the summer months fast approaching, the donation would enable Salvation Army to provide cool and comfortable facilities.
“These air conditioners will make an incredible difference over the summer months and we are so pleased that we are able to provide a comfortable place for those who are in need,” he said.
Lieutenant Gail Sweeney extended thanks to Kleenheat Gas for its support.
Mr Caldwell said the donation was part of the ongoing Regional Care Services program partnership between Kleenheat Gas and Salvation Army.
“Over the years Kleenheat and the Salvos have worked together,” he said.
The Regional Care Services program was established in 2009 to support a different regional community in Australia each month by providing operational funding and donations.
Mr Caldwell said Kleenheat Gas had donated $200,000 so far through the program.
