The Thomasville Federal Emergency Management Agency donated 45 electric fans to the Thomasville Red Cross to stock in its hurricane shelters.
Red Cross shelters will use the fans if they are called into action during a natural disaster.
The donation will save the Red Cross almost one thousand dollars.
During hurricane season, especially, Red Cross officials say they gladly welcome donations and are seeking disaster response volunteers in the community.
