The Salvation Army of Wake County's box fan giveaway

The Salvation Army of Wake County will host a fan giveaway on Wednesday, July 27 from 8:30 - 11 a.m. in the parking lot of the Judy D. Zelnak Center of Hope, 1863 Capital Blvd., Raleigh. Westlake Ace Hardware and The Salvation Army partnered for a fan drive which took place in June at the Westlake Ace Hardware stores in Wake County and raised a total of $2,113.08, enough for TSA Wake County to receive 113 fans.

“As we contend with near triple-digit heat, we are happy to help be a benefit to those in Wake County who are in need of some relief from the summer heat,” said Katie Ward Gonzalez, director of social services for TSA Wake County. “We are very thankful to the community for its support in contributing the funds and to Westlake Ace Hardware.”

Fans will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Persons wanting to receive a fan will need to have photo ID and proof of Wake County residency. TSA staff members will then place the fan in clients' cars.
