Center Township Trustee Jami Pratt is bringing back the program that was first started in 2018 between Center Township of Clinton County and the City of Frankfort, Project Cool!
Read on for more information on this initiative and how you can contribute to help everyone in our community stay safe in the summer heat.
PROJECT COOL! TO PROVIDE FREE FANS TO BEAT THE HEAT
The Center Township Trustee’s Office has brought back the popular program, Project Cool! This program will provide free fans to qualified individuals to help deal with this summer’s hot temperatures.
Applications to apply for a free fan are available at the Center Township Trustee’s Office at 359 N. Columbia Street in Frankfort, with Center Township Standards and Guidelines used to determine who receives a fan.
According to Pratt, priority will be given to people 50 years and older, families with children and those with medical issues.
“The heat of summer is upon us with Project Cool! being offered from June 1 – September 1. The fan program is critical because high temperatures pose dangerous health consequences for the elderly, ill and those with medical challenges,” Pratt said.
Pratts’ office also is accepting donations of fans to distribute them to those in need. Anyone interested in donating a fan can either drop it off at the office at 359 N. Columbia Street or call the office at 765-357-9100 to make needed arrangements. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9am-3pm, closed from 12pm-1pm for lunch.
