The only location for fan pick up is from 11:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, May 14th, on the first floor of the Holliday Building, 620 S.E. Madison. The fans will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

The partnership will provide 120 box Fans to distribute, free of charge, to those who need help staying cool as the summer heats up.

“Thanks to the generosity of Advisors Excel, we’re able to help those in need this summer,” said Monique Glaude’, division director of Community Engagement. “The fan giveaway is an opportunity for the City to help our citizens find relief from the summer heat.

“Advisors Excel is thankful to partner with the City of Topeka to distribute fans to those in need. Providing simple comfort to those who may not be able to provide it for themselves.”
