"Cool Corpus Christi" Annual Fan Drive

Community Partners Help Keep Seniors Cool with Donated Fans

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department’s Senior Community Services, in collaboration with WellMed and Grande Communications, will present the 8th Annual "Cool Corpus Christi" Fan Drive. The citywide fan collection will benefit senior citizens in need of a cooling system to provide relief from the summer heat.

The Cool Corpus Christi Fan Drive will take place July 13–28, 2017. Join us for the kick-off event on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Greenwood Senior Center, 4040 Greenwood Drive.

Collected fans will be delivered to homebound seniors and elderly persons identified in need at senior centers, Corpus Christi Housing Authority and through Adult Protective Services. Last year, more than 100 fans were collected and distributed within the Corpus Christi area. Monetary contributions may also be donated to the 2017 drive to purchase fans.
