Salvation Army to give away box fans


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

More than 100 new box fans will be available for needy households today and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Salvation Army, 612 W. College Blvd.

Westlake Hardware worked with The Salvation Army to host a fan drive benefitting the needy in Roswell. Funds were raised to purchase 92 box fans, and Westlake Hardware donated an additional 25 box fans.
Young children, people with certain medical issues and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to heat exposure. Keeping hydrated and cool are essential for their wellbeing.

A fan can make all the difference for someone who cannot cool off under current living conditions. For those who live on a fixed income or have other reasons not to be able to run air conditioning at home, a fan can be a lifesaver.
For more information about this giveaway contact Yvette Melendez, The Salvation Army (575) 208-2361, (575) 622-8700 or Tom Mentzer, Westlake Ace Hardware, (913) 626-9066
