KENS CARES: Project Cool provides free box fans to San Antonio-area senior citizens

The project works to prevent heat-related illness and deaths during the hot summer months in South Texas.

SAN ANTONIO — Project Cool has launched its campaign to provide free box fans to senior citizens this summer.

The coalition supporting Project Cool includes the City of San Antonio Department of Human Services, United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and Catholic Charities.
