Free box fan giveaway hosted in Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - There was some free relief for Memphians looking to fight this intense heat wave.
There were people lined up at the Neighborhood Christian Center on Jackson Avenue for a free box fan giveaway.
The fans were given away to people who were 59 and under with a disability, and to anyone who was 60 years or older.
Organizers for the event say this was a good time to address the serious needs of residents while learning about other possible issues.
“With covid reducing some, this allows us to re-engage with our neighbors and so Neighborhood Christian Centers is neighborhood-centric we want to be there with our neighbors we want to talk to them and see how they are doing and doing this gives us the opportunity to re-engage and learn what people need,” said Ephine Johnson CEO, Neighborhood Christian Center.
The organization is hoping to host another box fan giveaway in August.
