Numerous senior citizens will be staying cool or at least cooler this summer thanks to the generous donation of community partners. Saputo employees dropped off the 30 box fans at the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center Aug. 4, 2022, to benefit senior citizens in Hopkins County who need fans to help them stay cool during these extremely hot summer days.

Any senior citizen who needs a fan to stay cool, may drop by the Senior Citizens Center (150 MLK Dr.) to pick one up. There’s no charge to the senior adult, as all fans have been donated by community partners likes the Saputo Employees.

The Sulphur Springs Corvette Club also each year in the spring partners with the Senior Center to host a fan drive, donating and accepting donations of new box and stand fans go to senior citizens without working air conditions who have need of fans. This year, seniors had already begun calling the SCC in April asking for fans.

Without these donations some senior citizens, many of whom are on fixed incomes and unable to afford or to get out and purchase a new fan, would have no other means of cooling themselves during the hot, humid summer days. Fan donations to help senior adults are always welcome at the Senior Citizens Center during the warmer months of the year.

For additional information, call the Senior Citizens Center at 903-885-1661 weekdays until about 3 p.m.
