3 Degree Guarantee (WSLS)

ROANOKE, Va. – Now that it’s a new month, it’s time for a new 3 Degree Guarantee recipient!

Throughout this month, every time Your Local Weather Authority reports a temperature forecast accurately, Children’s Assistive Technology Service (C.A.T.S.) in Moneta will receive a donation.

C.A.T.S. is a nonprofit organization that works to provide children throughout the Commonwealth with refurbished adaptive and mobility equipment, free of charge.

Ultimately, the organization hopes to help children with physical, neurological and developmental disabilities that affect movement, behavior or communication.

C.A.T.S. has four locations in Virginia: Roanoke, Marion, Richmond and Hampton Roads.

  • If our forecasted temperature is exactly on the dot, we’ll donate $100 to a specific charity
