Low Income Families in El Paso Still Need Relief from the Heat

El Paso Extreme Weather Task Force organizes fan drive and fundraiser. 

The high temperatures are back, as we expect to reach near triple digits today and tomorrow. Unfortunately the County Attorney's Elder Protection Unit is running low on fans to give relief to needy families.

Without the community's support we cannot help prevent more heat-related emergencies. That is why the County Attorney's Elder Protection Unit in collaboration with the El Paso Fire Department, the El Paso County Sheriff, the Area Agency on Aging and all members the El Paso Extreme Weather Task Force are organizing a fan drive and fundraiser this coming Friday.

 Please help us protect needy families from the heat by promoting the event. A small $10 donation is enough to buy a fan and could make the difference in saving a life!

What:   Fundraiser and Fan Drive

When: Friday, July 21, 2006 from 6:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Where: King's Aire

         1035 Kessler St.

Fan drive cont. page 2 

Why:   To collect money and fans to help needy families and individuals to beat the heat.

We are also urging El Pasoans that are 65 years of age or older needing a fan to call the County Attorney's Elder Protection Unit at 546-2239 or the Area Agency on Aging at 533-0998.
