FANS FOR LIFE DRIVE: Helping Our Neighbors During This Heat Wave

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - As temperatures start to rise over the weekend, 18 News is teaming up with The Salvation Army, and Chemung County to help our neighbors stay cool during this heat wave. To do just that, we're kicking off a "FANS FOR LIFE DRIVE," Friday morning - and we need 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.
