Albany - Some Albany senior citizens are going to chill out this summer. They can thank the Pride of Albany 360 Masonic lodge.

Members raised about $350, and, with the help of target, bought and donated 30-fans to members of the Gray Senior Center.

Mamie Nelson doesn't have air conditioning and says the fan is a godsend. She said, "I think it's going to get hotter. I really need a fan."

"We try to help the community the best way we can and the project that came up we want to help the elderly at this part of the year," said Antonio Qualls.  

Many of the seniors who attend the center don't have family members nearby. That's why the Masons helped out.
