As we head into the first official weekend of the summer we're in for some hot temperatures. And for senior citizens without air conditioning that can be a deadly combination.
To help them beat the heat, Greenville Utilities dropped off fifty box fans to the Pitt County Council and fifty more to the Department of Social Services in Greenville.
The agencies will distribute the fans to the elderly, handicapped and qualifying families.
Greenville Utilities has participated in the fan give-away for the past 17 years.
