Get/Give Fan Relief for Seniors this summer
Summer months - June through August - inflict considerably high temperatures and humidity in San Antonio. Seniors living in homes without air conditioning or circulating air face a greater risk of heat-related injuries and fatalities during the summer.
Since 1997, the City of San Antonio (Human Services, Fire Department) Catholic Charities of San Antonio, Inc., United Way of San Antonio & Bexar County, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and community/corporate partners have coordinated Project Cool to provide heat relief to senior residents 60 years of age and older across the city through donation and free distribution of 20-inch box fans to seniors in need.
To find out how to donate a fan or request a fan (if you are an eligible senior), click on one of the two tabs below.
In order to protect the health of first responders, current safety protocols prohibit public visits to San Antonio Fire Stations. Unfortunately, this will prevent the San Antonio Fire Department, a longtime partner in Project Cool, from accepting fan donations at Fire Stations at this time.
