LAST DAY FOR FREE ICE WATER AT THE STATE FAIR

Wauwatosa, WI (August 11th, 2013) The Salvation Army has been providing free ice cold water to fair goers daily. Former Green Bay Packer Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler, WISN TV 12 reporter Mike Anderson and Miss Teen Wisconsin Heather Periard all stopped by the booth this year to quench their thirst.

“Providing free ice cold water to fair goers is our way of saying thank you to everyone who help us help families in need all over Wisconsin,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander.

In 2011, The Salvation Army distributed more than 80,000 cups of ice cold water at Wisconsin State Fair.
