Project Cool is a collaborative initiative designed to alleviate health risks to seniors, 60 years and older, by providing them with a new box fan. Project Cool has provided over 62,000 fans to seniors in San Antonio and Bexar County. The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District also provides fan recipients with information on how to avoid heat related illnesses and how best to use the fans safely. Starting June 1st, any person 60 years or older is eligible to receive a fan. To find out where you can obtain a fan, please contact either the United Way or GRASP directly.
If you would like to donate to this program, please drop off an 18-inch box fan at any of the San Antonio Metro Area Fire Stations (excluding the airport location) between June 1 and September 15. Alternatively, you may contact GRASP for donation locations. Project Cool is sponsored by United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County and GRASP (Greater Randolph Area Services Program).
