Fan drive spins into action, blows in relief from heat
Temperatures are rising, giving residents an opportunity to give back to their elderly neighbors.
The annual Triad Fan Drive is kicking on, and the Ruston Star Lodge has already donated about 15 fans to the cause.
Emma Williams, elderly services officer, said the summer can be a difficult time for elderly residents.
“The hot summer months are upon us, and we have many elderly citizens within Lincoln Parish that do not have a fan or an air conditioner,” Williams said. “Some citizens cannot afford to purchase a fan or an air conditioner.”
