LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An East Texas organization is trying to help our neighbors stay cool as temperatures continue to rise this summer.

The Friendship Social Club of Lufkin is sponsoring a fan drive. They are asking for donations of new or used fans. The organization said they will accept all sizes of fans, including box fans.

The Friendship Social Club will be accepting fan donations on July 18th from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Then on July 25th starting at 10 a.m. the group will distribute those donated fans to the elderly and disabled that are in need. Both events will take place at Jones Park in Lufkin.
