WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Evergy and the Salvation Army have teamed up to provide fans to those who need them.

“Immediate heat relief is needed now more than ever, as so many Kansans continue to face unexpected hardships this year. With the harsh reality for the disabled or elderly without access to air conditioning not able to afford to purchase a fan for themselves or their family,” said both organizations in a joint release.

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, Sedgwick County families can receive up to one fan from the Downtown Koch Center, 350 North Market campus (3rd & Market). The fans will be handed out from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 pm. both days.

After Tuesday, all Wichita Salvation Army locations will continue to offer fans to clients during regular program hours. Contact your neighborhood Corps Community Centers directly as their hours may vary: Citadel Community Center (1739 S. Elpyco) at 685-8699, and West Orchard Community Center (1910 S. Everett) at 943-9893.
