The Salvation Army Opens Facilities as Cooling Centers

The Quincy Salvation Army will open the Kroc Center and Family Services office as cooling centers on days when heat advisories are issued for our area, for those who need to get out of the extreme heat. The Family Services office is located in the new Emergency Shelter and Family Services Center at 501 Broadway in Quincy. It will be open as a cooling center during heat advisories, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. The Kroc Center, at 405 Vermont, is open as a cooling center during heat advisories from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, seven days a week.

The Salvation Army Announces Summer Fan Program

The Salvation Army will, again this year, distribute electric fans to those in need. The program will begin on June 2, and fans will be distributed as they are available in both Quincy and Hannibal.

Persons applying for fans should bring a photo ID with them to their local Family Services Center. For those with children under 5 years of age in the household, a Social Security card or Medical card is also required. In Quincy, the Family Services Center is located at 501 Broadway. Hannibal residents should apply at the Family Services Center at 302 Broadway in Hannibal. The hours at both locations are Monday through Thursday, 1:00PM to 4:00PM.

Fan distribution will be prioritized for people over the age of 65, those with children under 5 yrs of age, and those who are disabled. Individuals who received fans in last year’s program will not be eligible to receive a fan until after June 23rd.

Fans can only be distributed while supplies last. Donations of new and gently used fans are currently needed now and throughout the summer. Donated fans may be dropped off at either Salvation Army Family Services Center in Quincy or Hannibal, or the Kroc Center in Quincy.

Monetary donations for purchase of fans are also much needed and may be sent to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 75, Quincy, IL, 62306. Please designate donations as “Fan Program – Hannibal” or “Fan Program – Quincy”.
