Washoe County Human Services Agency (HSA) and KOLOCares are calling on the community to donate new fans for our seniors through August 2019.

Donated fans must be new and still be in boxes, and dropped off between 9AM and 3PM Monday through Friday at the Washoe County Senior Center at 1155 E. 9th Street, Building E. They can also be donated to Christensen Automotive locations.

Seniors, ages 60 and older, can pick up fans by contacting Washoe County Senior Services at (775) 328-2575 or stopping by the Senior Center at 1155 E. 9th Street, Building E between 9AM and 3PM Monday through Friday. 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 donations of fans for seniors in the Carson City area. Fans can be dropped off or picked up between 9AM and 4PM Monday through Friday at 911 Beverly Drive. The phone number is (775) 883-0703.
