(WIAT) — Temporary Emergency Services (TES) in Tuscaloosa is taking fan donations to distribute to needy families.

They’ve had so much demand that TES has put some restrictions on who is eligible to receive a fan.

The organization is asking for new or used portable fans.

The Office of Senior Citizen Services in Birmingham is also collecting fans for the elderly.

Anyone who would like to donate a fan, or money to buy a fan, can call the office at (205) 325-1416.

Additionally, people who want to donate can stop by the office, which is located at 2601 Highland Avenue South.
