CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The lower temperatures this week have made it easier for low income Iowans to keep cool, but with more summer heat still to come, they might need a way to deal with higher temperatures.

The Salvation Army gives away fans every Monday during the summer months. This year demand for those fans is down. So far, the Salvation Army gave away about 80 fans compared to last year at this time when the number had already reached 500.

Even though it's cooler right now, the Salvation Army still hopes people will think ahead to be ready for hotter days.

"We're hoping people just will remember that it does get hot and they'll think proactively and come and get the fans to help them through those warmer days we do have," Lia Pontarelli, Salvation Army, Director of Development and Communications, said.

The Salvation Army is hosting another fan giveaway Monday, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Corps Center, 1000 C Ave NW in Cedar Rapids.

All the fans the Salvation Army doesn't give away will be kept for fan giveaways next summer.
