Every year, Maria Friske gets more fans.  

She’s gathering the kind that circulates air and the kind that admire what she’s doing to help low-income seniors stay cool this summer.

“I say God bless her because that’s what she is, a blessing from God,” said Lillian Gonzalez, who met Friske when she brought a fan to the Rochester woman’s house on the day before summer officially started.

After two summers of bringing fans to older people living in adult-care homes, Friske wants to get 20-inch box fans to Monroe County seniors who are living in their own homes.
