LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Aging Partners is accepting fan donations through Friday, June 11 in Lincoln. Electric box fans will be accepted at the Aging Partners office in downtown Lincoln at 1005 O Street.

“The weather can be unpredictable at times, but we know it’s going to soon be very hot in southeast Nebraska and we want to encourage everyone to stay hydrated,” said Mitch Sump, Aging Partners Program Coordinator. “The risk for heat-related illness is especially high for the elderly, and we want to reach out to Lincoln and Lincoln-area residents and ask them to show the neighbor-helping-neighbor compassion they’re known for by donating fans that we can give to those in need.”

Aging Partners will also accept monetary donations for those who cannot purchase a box fan.

Aging Partners plans, coordinates and advocates for older people in our eight-county area. Their mission is to enhance daily living, expand personal choices and educate the community in an effort to ensure the independence and full life of the people they serve.
