CO detector proceeds benefit Salvation Army

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Salvation Army will be able to help the community, thanks to the carbon monoxide detectors you bought. Wednesday morning News 4, CW 23 and Valu Home Centers presented the Salvation Army with a check for more than $49,000.

The proceeds came from purchases of carbon monoxide and natural gas alarms. The money will help feed families and provide shelter during the holiday season.

Salvation Army Major Thomas Applin said, “This has been a tough year with this November storm and everything that’s been happening, every dollar counts and this is an incredible gift.”

It’s not too late to help. The alarms are still available through Christmas Eve. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
