Jacob Kollman, 12, of Winchester - set out to help the less fortunate in his community by collecting fans, which he then donated to the Outreach Community Center to be distributed to those in need.
"We are thrilled at the caring and generosity of this young man in thinking of those less fortunate than himself," Marsha Mayner, Outreach Community Center. "Every year we have people come to us who have no way of cooling their home, so this is going to help both us and them a great deal."
During the month of July the center will begin distributing the fans - first to the elderly and disabled and then to others who might be in need of a fan. To request a fan or to donate one - please call the Outreach Community Center - 217-883-0359.
We just again want to say "THANK YOU" to Jacob, his family, and the many that donated.
