Fans are needed, can be dropped off at 501 Broadway

The Quincy Command of the Salvation Army says that starting later this month, it will resume offering free fans for those who need to beat the heat.

The Salvation Army said Tuesday that they will again be collecting and distributing electric fans to those in need. Distribution of fans from the Family Services facilities in both Quincy and Hannibal starts Monday, June 13. Anyone living in Adams, Pike, and Brown Counties in Illinois, and Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Shelby, & Monroe Counties in Missouri are encouraged to apply. The Salvation Army says that right now, they have a limited number of fans available, and are asking for donations. Any new or gently used fans of all sizes, along with cash, can be dropped off at The Family Services building at 501 Broadway in Quincy.

If you want to get a fan, you should bring a photo I.D. to your local Salvation Army Family Services Center. A Social Security card or medical card is also required for those with children under five years of age in the household. Hannibal residents should apply at the Family Services Center at 200 Steamboat Bend Shopping Center in Hannibal. That's also the Salvation Army Family Store. Application hours at both locations are Monday through Thursday, 1– 4 pm. Fan distribution will be prioritized for people over 65, those with children under five years of age, and those who are disabled. Fans will only be distributed while supplies last.

In addition to the fan program, The Kroc Center at 405 Vermont in Quincy will be available as a cooling center Monday-Friday 6 am to 9 pm, Saturday 8 am-7 pm, and Sunday 1–5 pm on days when heat advisories are issued for our area, for those who need to get out of the extreme heat.
