A local Salvation Army has received a boost in funding thanks to an oil and gas drilling company doing work in Belmont County.
On Tuesday, the Hess Corporation presented a $10,000 check to the Bellaire Salvation Army. Captain Louis Patrick said the shelter is full, and people continue to be experiencing hard financial times in the area, and the donation was greatly appreciated.
Patrick said the check is the ammunition he needs to fight hunger and homelessness.
The Bellaire Salvation Army is located at 315-37th Street in Bellaire and can be contacted at 740-676-6225. Their website can be found here.
The Hess Corporation said they do all they can to support schools, drug interventions and programs to help the needy.
