The Salvation Army will, again this year, distribute electric fans to those in need. The program will begin on June 15th, 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 Salvation Army 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.
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, located at 405 Vermont Street.
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”.
