The need for fan donations were increasing as temperatures swelled in central Ohio on Thursday.
10TV News is working in conjunction with LifeCare Alliance to collect more than 3,000 fans to serve their clients who are sensitive to heat.
The organization, which serves about 1,500 people, does not have enough fans to go around, 10TV News reported.
"Seniors and those who are medically challenged have compromised immune systems already," LifeCare Alliance CEO Chuck Gehring said. "With the heat, it could cause real problems in their houses and they can get heat exhaustion, heat stroke and end up in the hospital very easily."
Those wanting to help can drop off new, boxed fans at any fire station in Franklin County. Officials stressed that fire stations are merely drop-off stations, and fans cannot be picked up at the stations.
If you or someone you know needs a fan, call the Fan Campaign Hotline of LifeCare Alliance at 614-437-2870.
