TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - As temperatures rise, so does the need for box fan donations at Covenant Cooperative Ministry.
The organization has been collecting fans to distribute to families during the summer months.
Executive director Rose Aycock says many local businesses have helped by either holding fundraisers or donating money.
But Aycock says there are only 17 fans left, and with temperatures hitting the 90's this weekend.. She says those fans will disappear.
Any family can pick up a fan, especially those with breathing problems.
"We had a mother walk in; I think it was Monday who had three young children and no ventilation in her apartment, so we were very happy that we were able to help her out with a fan. These are the kid of people that we're trying to help here," Aycock said.
If you would like to donate a fan, Aycock says you can drop it off at the ministry located on 10th and a half street in Terre Haute.
Monetary donations can be dropped in the mail. For more information you can call Covenant Cooperative Ministry at (812) 478-7700.
