RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - With summer approaching and temperatures already having hit the 90-degree mark, we're asking you to become part of the annual KOLO 8 Fan Club.
We have once again partnered with Washoe Senior Services to help local seniors in need stay cool this summer.
Seniors ages 60 and older who do not have air conditioning or are in need of fans to help cool their homes 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 2016 Fan Drive for Seniors.
WCSS staffers are available to answer questions and assist seniors.
Donated fans can be dropped off or picked up between 9AM and 3PM Monday through Friday through August 31. Only donations of new fans still in boxes will be accepted.
To qualify for a fan, recipients must be 60 years of age or older. Seniors without air conditioning and those who have not previously participated in the program are a priority.
