OKLAHOMA CITY - While we're getting a slight break from the heat, there are still Oklahomans who are struggling to stay cool.

NewsChannel 4's In Your Corner team has been collecting fans for the Salvation Army, but we're still in need of more.

Beverly Griffey doesn't take herself too seriously.

“I'm enjoying life to its fullest," the 74-year-old said.

Even though she's enjoying life, things don't always come easy.

Beverly's husband died from heart failure, and her heart and kidneys are in bad shape.

While she has a working air conditioner, she can't afford to run it.

Instead, we gave her a fan to keep her home a little cooler without the soaring electric bills.

“I consider it a real blessing,” she said.

She says people are not only giving her cool air, they're inspiring her to keep going.

“They've made the world a kinder place for some of us who are just getting by,” she said.

Your fan donations are going to good homes.

Viewers can join us Monday for our 4th annual "Fans 4 Oklahoma" fan drive, which will be held at Rococo's Restaurant and Wine Bar, located at the corner of N.Penn and 28th St.
