SAN ANTONO, TX – It’s widely known that exposure to hot temperatures for long periods of time can set someone on a direct course towards heat-related illness and injuries.

Seniors are even more vulnerable and face a greater risk of heat-related illness.

G Partners & Realty and Good Samaritan Community Services have partnered up to bring a bit of relief to Seniors at the Good Samaritan Senior Center. Right now until August 12, 20-inch box fans will be collected through a donation drive.

They cost between $20 and $30 each.

Anyone who has a desire to help can purchase a 20-inch box fan and bring it to one of the following locations through Aug. 12:

  • Aligned Mortgage at 5727 Farinon Dr. between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Pepe’s Tacos n’ Salsa at 12820 Jones Maltsberger Rd. during operating hours

Donors who have purchased a fan can also arrange for pick-up or place a monetary donation towards the purchase of a box fan by calling Benjamin Godina with G Partners & Realty at 210-838-0584.

Good Sam believes in empowering communities to thrive. They offer services for children and families including an early childhood services program, a youth and teen services program, and the only nationally accredited senior center in south Texas.
