A longstanding tradition of donating box fans to residents in need continues at the Erath County Sheriff’s Office this summer.

“The heat is already here and some gracious citizens have donated box fans for us to give away,” said Sheriff Matt Coates.  

The supply is limited and will be given on a first-come basis to the elderly and residents in need. Only one fan will be given per family.

Fans can be picked up from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the sheriff’s office. 

“If you know someone who needs a fan and can’t get to us, we will deliver,” Coates said.
