Temporary Emergency Services Fan Drive

By WVUA 23 News Reporter Jocelyn Claborn

As we settle into 2022, colder temperatures are here to stay for a bit. But not everyone can keep themselves warm, so WVUA 23 is teaming up with Temporary Emergency Services to get heaters into the hands of those who need them.

Today from 5 to 6:30, TES is hosting a drive-thru heater drop-off in search of their goal of collecting as many as 300 space heaters for the community.

Other items needed include blankets, hats, gloves, jackets, bottled water or canned soup.

TES Executive Director Karen Thompson-Jackson said they need all the help they can get from the community.

“Think about this gift,” she said. “You might forfeit a pizza, going to the movies or a cute outfit. Just remember this could be the gift of love, of warmth and community.”

If you’re in need of a space heater, you can call TES at 205-758-5535.

Physical donations are accepted 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays at TES, located at 1705 15th St. in Tuscaloosa. You can donate online right here.
