RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Washoe County has handed out more than 400 fans to seniors in our area thanks to generous donations from the community.

It’s all part of the KOLO 8 Summer Fan Drive which runs through the month of August.

Washoe County reported they had handed out 475 fans as of July 18. Last summer, a record 800 fans were handed out to Washoe County seniors. There’s still time to donate!

New fans must still be in the box and dropped off or picked up curbside at Washoe County Senior Services at 1155 E. Ninth St., building E. Fans can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Only donations of new fans in the box will be accepted.

Seniors are asked to contact Washoe County Senior Services at (775) 328-2575 ext. 9 to see if a fan is available before coming by.

Seniors without air conditioning and those who have not previously participated in the program are a priority.

The Carson City Senior Center is also accepting new fans for seniors. You can drop them off at 911 Beverly Drive from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
