Senior Citizens Inc. in Savannah is beginning its annual fan giveaway for seniors early as near-record temperatures scorch Georgia.
The Savannah Morning News reports that the program offers free fans for those without adequate means of cooling their homes.
Officials say seniors must be 55 or older to qualify. They must apply in person at Senior Citizens, 3025 Bull St., between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Officials also say that donations of fans -- and donations for the purchase of fans -- are being accepted at Senior Citizens Inc.
