To help Washoe County seniors stay cool this summer, KOLO TV and Washoe County Senior Services are teaming up for the 2015 Fan Drive for Seniors. The community is encouraged to donate new fans to assist seniors who need help cooling their homes 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 2015 Fan Drive for Seniors. Staff is available to answer questions and assist seniors.

The drive is taking place now through Aug. 31. Drop-off and pick-up times are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon.-Fri. Only new in the box fans will be accepted.
