The Salvation Army is distributing the fans at its various social service centers in the DFW Metroplex. For more information about eligibility to receive a fan, contact your local Salvation Army center.

Summer is in full swing for several more weeks with oppressive heat indexes forecast for the DFW Metroplex. Heat poses a real danger to the elderly, families with young children and those with medical issues. Fans are critical to keeping those without air conditioning or who are on a fixed income comfortable and safe during the hot summer.
