Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The Columbia Police Department's Fan the Heat program is underway.
They are collecting fans and air conditioners to give to residents who have no cooling system in their homes. This is especially important for the elderly and those with respiratory issues.
Tuesday, the department was able to buy about 20 air conditioning units at a reduced rate from the Lowe's store on Garners Ferry Road.
The Fan the Heat program runs through the end of August.
