Senior Fan Giveaway

So that's why we found workers from Greenville Utilities unloading about one hundred fans to donate to Pitt County Seniors Friday morning. The donation is a part of the fan giveaway program. Each year Greenville Utilities makes sure their elderly customers have fans. They say its important because many seniors suffer from heat exhaustion during the summer months. Also, a lot in the elderly community can not afford air conditioning costs. Andy Yakim from Greenville Utilities says the fans are more economical. The board of commissioners authorized the fan purchases. Yakim says, altogether the fans cost about fourteen hundred dollars.
