BodyTailors, a Fort Smith fitness facility, recently donated $17,000 to the Fort Smith Children's Emergency Shelter. The funds were raised during BodyTailors' "Push-ups for a Cause" challenge event in August.

The shelter serves area children ages 6-17 who have been removed from their home by the Department of Human Services due to neglect and/or abuse.
