The Salvation Army’s Fan Drive is taking place June 6-23, 2019 to collect fans for residents of the area that are most vulnerable to the heat.
The drive began with a collection event at Westlake ACE Hardware, 2350 S. Campbell Avenue in Springfield. While the event is happening in Springfield, all Westlake ACE Hardware locations are accepting donations of fans.
Westlake Hardware is also allowing people to purchase and donate box fans through their website.
The Salvation Army will distribute the fans through the summer to “qualified individuals.” If you know someone who may benefit from a box fan, contact the Salvation Army at 417-862-5509.
