"We have a lot of people in our community that are suffering from not having the use of air conditioners so we thought this could be one way to give back to the community for the elderly and those without fans," Tift County Commissioner Melissa Hughes said.
Hughes is getting the word out about a local kickball team that is challenging other local teams to donate fans.
"We're Tifton Kickin' Kuties, a kickball team, in the community and our slogan is 'We're kicking as a team to save our community' and with Commissioner Hughes, we're donating fans and trying to get the other kickball teams in our area to get involved," Tonya Whitehead said.
"It's a challenge. We're challenging these other teams," Hughes said.You may apply for a fan through July 11, and donate fans through July 12 at the market.
