"Fan Club" Helping Seniors Beat the Heat

Sweltering heat is common during a Northern Nevada summer, but it can be especially hard on seniors. Washoe County Senior Services is teaming up with KOLO TV for the 2014 Fan Drive for Seniors. The community is encouraged to donate new fans for seniors who have no way of staying cool this summer.

Last year, thanks to the generous donations of the community, Senior Services gave more than 300 fans to local seniors in need. Washoe County Senior Services Director, Grady Tarbutton, said the drive had a huge impact last year for one couple in particular.

“Last summer, the swamp cooler in the mobile home of a 70-year-old couple broke down and they could not afford to have it repaired. Through the generous donations received from the community, the department was able to provide the couple with a large, box fan, enabling them to manage through the hottest part of the summer in their poorly insulated home.”

Seniors, ages 60 and older, who do not have air conditioning or are in need of a fan to help cool their home are encouraged to contact Washoe County Senior Services at (775) 328-2575 or stop by the Senior Center at 1155 E. 9th Street, Building E, to learn more about how they can participate in the 2014 Fan Drive for Seniors. WCSS staff are available to answer questions and assist seniors.
