Young man collects fans for elderly

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A young man is helping senior citizens in Savannah beat the heat.

Masi McCoy put together his own fan drive. He got donations from family and friends and dropped off 15 new electric box fans at Senior Citizens Incorporated on Thursday.

"I just wanted to help the seniors because I'd seen they were hot," McCoy said.

"He was running with the idea of it, discussing it with his friends," said Delores Aaron, McCoy's grandmother. "His friends' parents started discussing it and this is what happened."

"It's pretty great because this will hopefully have a ripple effect because it's people helping people," said Jenny House, VP of Senior Citizens, Inc. "You've got this wonderful kid doing this great thing that are helping our seniors who maybe can't afford to pay their air conditioning bill or don't have the luxury of air conditioning."

If you would like to donate a fan, you can do so at Senior Citizens, Inc. located at 3025 Bull Street.
