Shreveport group gives fans to senior citizens

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Shreveport-area group is trying to help senior citizens keep cool by giving away fans.

Humana Healthcare setup distribution points in front of several area Wal-Mart stores giving away fans.

Throughout the morning, all seniors had to do was show their ID and their Medicare card and they got a free fan.

A Humana spokesperson says they will do anything they can to help seniors during the summer.

"They are not able to run (their) air conditioning as much.  The fans will give them some type of relief," said Leonard Gresens.

If you were not able to make it to Wal-Mart Thursday, you can pick one up at the Bossier or Webster Parish Council on Aging.
