TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

You can help people in need stay cool in the summer heat.

The "Tifton: We're Your Biggest Fans" drive collects and distributes fans to elderly and low income families who may not have air conditioning.

The Tifton Gazette, United Way of South Central Georgia and One Street at a Time are sponsoring the event.

"There are a lot of families that have small children, we know they're a lot of elderly people that don't have air conditioning and this time of year you got to have air," said Angye Morrison, Tifton Gazette.

"If you don't have air circulating, where do you go? That can be deadly for our elderly people," said Commissioner Melissa Hughes.

You can drop off new fans at the Tifton Gazette office.
