The Webster Parish Council on Aging is still seeking fans for its elderly recipients.
Dathene Brown, executive director of COA, says they have received some fans, and even disbursed some, but with the temperatures staying in the triple digits, fan donations will help many of the elderly they serve stay cooler.
“We did not get many fans on the local level,” she said. “The Caddo Council on Aging gave us some, and they’ve passed out about 10 of those. We’re serving those who are 60 years old and above, bur we’ve had one in their 50s put in an application.”
Primarily, COA is focusing on those 60 and older, she emphasized.
“What we don’t giveout of this year, we’ll put upstairs to have some to begin next summer,” she said. “Let’s hope it’s not as hot as this summer.”
The Webster COA is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. To drop off a fan, deliver it to 1482 Sheppard Street. For more information, call 371-3056.
