Reno, Nevada. June 6. 2016. Sweltering heat is common during a northern Nevada summer, but it can be especially hard on seniors. That’s why KOLO TV and Washoe County Senior Services are teaming up for the 2016 Fan Drive for Seniors. The community is encouraged to donate new fans for seniors who have no way of staying cool this summer.
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 2016 Fan Drive for Seniors. WCSS staff is available to answer questions and assist seniors.
What: KOLO Summer Fan Drive for Seniors
Where: New fans must still be in the box and dropped off or picked up at Washoe County Senior Services at 1155 E. Ninth St., Building E, Reno.
When: June 6 through Aug. 31. Drop off or pick up between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday
Details: Only donations of new fans in the box 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.
