MOUNT VERNON — The recent power outage has caused much difficulty when it comes to the subject of food storage. The Salvation Army, Mount Vernon, was among those affected.

“We have 2 upright refrigerators and a chest freezer that we had to empty because they thawed before the power came back,” said caseworker Shirley Ketter. She added, “We purchased fresh fruit for the cooling station.”

Fortunately, The Salvation Army recently had a walk-in cooler and freezer installed adjacent to the gym, and the food stored in the freezer was preserved. Ketter mentioned that a generator was donated by Mid-Ohio Suzuki, which allowed them to run fans and an ice machine for the cooling station.

Power was restored to The Salvation Army late Sunday evening.
