WPSD-TV Local 6 and C-Plant Federal Union are teaming up to “Beat the Heat” this summer by collecting new and gently used electric fans from Friday, June 16 – Friday, July 7. Fans donated at C-Plants South Side location (3201 Wayne Sullivan Drive) will be picked up and distributed by Paducah Cooperative Ministry.

Last year, PCM was able to help 172 needy households in our community by providing them with a fan. Fans are critical for homes without air-conditioning and very helpful for those needing to keep their utility bills lower by lessening reliance on air-conditioning.

Fans are provided on a first come, first serve basis to McCracken County residents who meet income guidelines, have demonstrated need and have not received a fan within the past two years. For information about fans, call 270/442-6795.
