TOPEKA -- The City of Topeka will be giving away fans this year through its “Project Neighborhood Relief” to those who qualify on Monday July 19, 2010. This is the fifth year for the program.
To qualify, a person must be a Topeka resident at least 55 years of age or one with a disability and have an annual income of $25,800 or less for a one person household. Two-person households must have an annual income of $29,400 or less; three-persons, $33,100 or less; and four persons, $36,800 or less.
Those applying must provide proof of household income, social security card and photo identification. Those with a disability must provide documentation of the disability, such as a letter from a doctor or documentation from Social Security. Due to extremely limited stock this year, only those applicants who come prepared with all of the identification and documents will be accepted.
The only location for fan pick up is at the Holliday Building, 620 SE Madison, Monday July 19 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., first floor.
The City plans on distributing a very limited amount of fans therefore they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. “The fan giveaway is an opportunity for the City to help our citizens find relief from the summer heat,” said Deputy City Manager Randy Speaker.
