The Senior Citizens Center and Corvette Club are once again partnering to host the 6th Annual Summer Fan Drive, which kick off Monday, June 1. The purpose of the drive is to help senior citizens keep cool this summer.
This year, the center is asking for donations of new box fans or oscillating fans until Friday, June 19. Fans may be brought to the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center, located at 150 Martin Luther King Drive.
“If you would rather donate money, the Corvette Club will be going to the store and purchasing fans with what money is donated,” Weatherman said.
Any senior citizens who is in need of a fan may call Karon Weatherman at (903) 885-1661 and get on the list. She will begin passing fans as soon as they begin coming in.
