OKLAHOMA CITY – As temperatures across the metro continue to climb, some Oklahomans are struggling to stay cool.

Westlake ACE Hardware recently hosted a fan drive to benefit The Salvation Army.

Customers throughout Oklahoma City generously donated $7,559 to purchase 540 new box fans to help others in need. Westlake also agreed to donate an additional 50 fans to bring the total to 590 box fans.

The donation of fans was supposed to arrive on Wednesday. However, officials say it has been delayed.
