Annual program brings relief
Westar Energy and the Salvation Army are partnering to help residents in need.
Westar delivers fans to El Dorado as a part of an annual program to help Kansans get some relief from the heat. These fans are to benefit people at high risk of heat-related illnesses due to the sizzling summer months.
On July 22, Reed Holbrook, business manager for the El Dorado area, delivered 30 fans to the Salvation Army.
Fans are given to people who need assistance keeping their homes cool during the summer. The Salvation Army will determine eligibility for families able to receive a fan. Anyone who is interested in acquiring a fan should call the local Salvation Army at 316-321-4070.
