As we move into the summer season, heat relief will be needed more than ever.

The Northeast Kansas Area Agency on Aging has joined forces with two amazing partners to help area residents improve their quality of life and beat the heat.

Neighbors who are elderly, disabled people without access to air conditioning or for those who cannot afford to purchase a fan for themselves have the opportunity to receive one fan per family thanks to generous donations from WESTAR ENERGY and The Salvation Army, from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18 at the Northeast Kansas Area Agency on Aging, 1803 Oregon St., Hiawatha.

By providing an ID, proof of address and electric bill, fans will be available until all fans are distributed. Westar’s annual local gift of fans is part of a $60,000 fan contribution distributed throughout the communities it serves.
