The Des Moines Radio Group is helping the elderly and disadvantaged through the Cooling the Capital program. Summer heat can brutal for those who are on a fixed-income and have no access to air conditioning or other methods of beating the heat.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
We are looking for window unit air conditioners, box fans, and table fans all summer long. You can drop them off at any of the 22 Cellular Advantage locations in the metro or at the Des Moines Radio Group at 1416 Locust St., Des Moines.
You can buy a fan for the donation from Hiland Park Hardware at 6th & Euclid in Des Moines for a discounted price of $20.
Gently used items are appreciated, but new items are safer and more efficient. We will have them quality checked and repaired when necessary. Donations are open until September 1st.
