The Xenia Adult Recreation Services Center is helping Greene County seniors stay cool by giving away free box fans.

The fans are currently available to Greene County residents who are age 60 or older and do not have air conditioning. Seniors can pick up their fans at the Xenia Recreation Services Center located at 130 E. Church Street in Xenia.

Executive Director of the Recreation Services Center, Judy Baker, says the center has had to buy more fans to keep up with the demand.

Baker stated, “Seniors often struggle with breathing problems in the heat and we ask people check on their elderly neighbors during extreme hot days.”

If you are an elderly citizen of Greene County and need assistance during extremely warm weather you can reach out to the Xenia Recreation Services Center at 937-376-3195
