TULSA -

The official start of summer is just a couple weeks away but it's already heating up outside.

Beginning Thursday, the Salvation Army and Westlake Ace Hardware Stores throughout Tulsa are working to keep Oklahomans cool by holding a fan drive. 

During the fan drive, Westlake customers are asked to donate by rounding-up their purchase at the register.

All donations go toward buying new box fans for the Tulsa Salvation Army.

Westlake will kick off the fan drive with a donation of 50 fans. 

Last year, customers in the Tulsa area donated more than $3,100 equating to 208 fans given to the local Salvation Army for distribution to fellow citizens. 

"With so many Americans facing unexpected hardship this year, we must work together more than ever before to face challenges like summer heat," said Dale Bannon, The Salvation Army Secretary for National Community Relations and Development. "

The fan drive will be held June 4-21.

Donations can be made at any Westlake Ace store, or if you prefer to donate online, you can do so by clicking here.

All donations, both in-store and online, stay in the local community.
