Valley Rescue Mission is in need of fans

Valley Rescue Mission says it is in need of fans. Each year the elderly and needy are placed in serious risk of heat stroke and even death because of a lack of air conditioning.

With the temperatures on the rise, elderly and needy people will be coming to Valley Rescue Mission. The non-profit says it distributes more than 200 fans to the elderly and needy throughout Chattahoochee Valley.

Fans are given first to the elderly, then to those with medical conditions, parents with small children and then as they are available to others in need. 

If you have an extra new fan you would like to donate to the Mission for distribution to the elderly and needy please call (706) 322-8267 or bring it to the Valley Rescue Mission at 2903 Second Avenue.
