The Extreme Weather Task Force is trying to help El Pasoans beat the heat by handing out free fans and Wednesday El Paso Walmart’s joined the caused by donating 300 fans.
Last summer two El Pasoans died from heat stroke because of El Paso's weather. One of those deaths was because the woman didn't have an air conditioner.
"This is a great opportunity for us to get out and get involved with our community out there," said Kimberly Johnstun from Walmart.
Donations can be made to the task force by dropping off a fan to any El Paso Fire Station. Anyone needing a fan can call 211.
