The Salvation Army has kicked off their 11th annual Beat the Heat Fan Drive. With temperatures already in the mid to upper 90's, this summer could be brutal.

By donating a fan, you could be helping someone in need have a way to find a little bit of relief from the angry sun.

Here's how it works - purchase a box fan and drop it off at the the Salvation Army office at 633 N Broadway Ave in Tyler. They will collect your fans through June 30. It's that easy.

Fans will be accepted after that date if you're a bit late.

Between now and June 30, the Salvation Army wants to reach the goal of 400 box fans donated. That's not too far off of the 380 collected during last year's drive.

If you need some more details, call 903-592-4361 or go to salvationarmytexas.org. You can also make a monetary donation to be used for the purchase of fans.
