A local church outreach is teaming up with the RossCountySeniorCitizensCenter to help get cooling fans to place in the homes of seniors this summer.


Pastor Matt Roe, of First Church of God's Five Loaves Outreach, said it is a needed service: "Our summers are very warm around here, and a lot of our seniors don't have air conditioning, and so this is a way that we can maybe meet a small need that they have."


A collection of the fans will be held from 9am-1pm, Saturday, at the Chillicothe Wal-Mart parking lot. The fans will be distributed to needy senior citizens later this month at the center on Western Avenue.
