ECTOR COUNTY - West Texas Opportunities helping the elderly and disabled people in Ector County beat the summer heat.

This year they're giving away fans during a fan drive.

Anyone interested needs to make an appointment with West Texas Opportunities.

They say with the temperatures in the triple digits, it's just a small way to help out.

"The income for the elderly and disabled is not very much and some times, especially in the summer, we know is hot and some of them can't afford a fan. That's why we do it, to help them to try to keep them cool, we don't want them getting sick," Sylvia Campbell, with West Texas Opportunities, said.

They'll be giving out the fans while supplies last, so to make an appointment you need to call 333-9027, and bring a photo ID, Social Security card, a bill, and proof of income for everyone in the household.
