Roper’s HVAC delivers new fans for Carson City seniors; more still sought
Dirk Roper, owner and CEO of Roper’s Heating and Air Conditioning, delivered another 25 fans to the Carson City Senior Center as part of the KOLOCares 2022 Fan Drive to help Carson City seniors stay cool this summer.
Over the past three years, Roper’s has donated nearly 200 new fans to the Senior Center for distribution to local seniors, doubling the donated by the community.
So far this year, Roper has donated 92 fans and is asking the community to join him in helping Carson City seniors to beat the summer heat.
The Carson City Senior Center has handed out 154 fans year to date to those who need them.
Roper said the fans may be picked up by a Roper’s service technician during a service call, or dropped by the Roper’s office, located at 2062 S. Edmonds Drive in Carson City, or the Carson City Senior Center between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at 911 Beverly Drive.
“Our hottest months are upon us,” Roper said. “For our seniors who may not have air conditioning, a fan can move air around and create a cooling effect. Seniors are extremely sensitive to excessive heat and a fan can make a big difference in their health and welfare this summer.”
Seniors aged 60 or older are eligible to receive a new fan from the Carson City Senior Center.
