Many people in the Topeka area will get a break from the summer’s hot weather thanks to a donation by Westar Energy.
This morning, the utility company donated 125 fans to the American Red Cross’s “Operation Heat Relief” program.
The free fans will help people who are elderly, disabled or have low incomes.
“Operation Heat Relief” began in 1988 and since then nearly 7,800 fans have been given away to those who need them.
To get a free fan, you’ll need to fill out a short form at the Topeka Red Cross Office. You will need a photo ID and a utility bill to verify your address.
