Chemung County DSS Participates in "Fan For Life Drive"

ELMIRA - As temperatures start to rise over the weekend, Chemung County is teaming up with WETM 18 News and The Salvation Army to help residents stay cool during this weekend's heat wave. WETM  is kicking off "FANS FOR LIFE DRIVE," Friday morning and asking for your help.  

We are looking for new or gently used fans to provide to neighbors in our community who are unable to buy one for themselves. Our goal is to make sure our neighbors in need are cool and safe during this upcoming heat wave. 

You can drop your donated fan off at the following locations:
