THE HOT WEATHER CAN BE DANGEROUS FOR EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY
THAT'S WHY GREATER SPOKANE COUNTY MEALS ON WHEELS
IS ASKING THE PUBLIC TO CHIP IN TO HELP KEEP THEIR
SENIORS COOL THIS SUMMER.
KXLY4'S KYLEE CRUZ IS LIVE TONIGHT TO EXPLAIN HOW
YOU CAN HELP.
RIGHT NOW - MORE THAN EVER, GREATER SPOKANE COUNTY
MEALS ON WHEELS NEEDS FANS!
MANY OF THE SENIORS THEY SERVE DON'T HAVE A-C.
SO THIS SIMPLE FAN IS THE MAIN WAY THEY KEEP COOL.
i don't like it at all
CHRISTINE FRAIJO IS ROASTING!
in this kind of weather, i can't even be outside or
anything, it's just too hot, it's not good for my
BUT HER HOME ISN'T MUCH BETTER.
IT FEELS LIKE AN OVEN INSIDE.
SHE HAS NO A-C AND JUST ONE OVERHEAD FAN.
WHEN GREATER SPOKANE COUNTY MEALS ON WHEELS DROPPED
OFF MORE THAN LUNCH!
they brought me a fan
CHRISTINE IS BESIDE HERSELF!
im on disability and i don't get a lot of money for
those kinds of things - to me that is very special,
i just think of how much longer i am going to live
and a fan like that is going to help me
BUT CHRISTINE GOT THE LAST FAN.
AND, IT'S ONLY SUPPOSED TO GET WARMER THIS WEEKEND.
this year we had a few to start with but as the heat
continued we have more and more calls and no fans
THIS NON-PROFIT DELIVERS 400 MEALS EACH DAY TO LOCAL
OFTEN TIMES IN THE SUMMER, THEY DROP OFF FANS TOO!
the hardest thing is telling someone you can't give
them something they really need
IT'S NOT JUST FOR COMFORT.
BUT FOR THESE SENIORS HEALTH AS WELL.
it's going to help me a lot
CHRISTINE IS GRATEFUL SHE NOW HAS A FAN.
SHE DRINKS LOTS OF WATER.
BUT THIS DEVICE WILL DO WONDERING TO KEEP HER COOL.
IF YOU WANT TO HELP.
DROP OFF A NEW OR USED FAN TO GREATER SPOKANE COUNTY
MEALS ON WHEELS.
THEY ARE LOCATED NEAR PINES AND SPRAGUE IN THE VALLEY.
