Free fans for low income families

Posted: Updated:

Now that summer is starting to sizzle, the Department of Health and Human Services begins their Fan Distribution Program.

Fans are available to low-income, aged or disabled people and families free of charge. Funds for the free fans come from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Thirty nine locations are participating in the program state wide.

In Gering, the Carpenter Center on Terry Boulevard is a participating location. They've already handed out 38 fans so far.

"We get calls on it daily. So, hopefully this will get the word out and we'll get a few more calls and give out a few more fans," says Sam Serda, Director of the Carpenter Center.

The free fan program will run through the summer. To participate, you can drop in to a location or check the Department of Health and Human Services web site for more information.
