Family Eldercare’s annual Summer Fan Drive meets a critical basic need: relief from life-threatening heat for those who do not have or cannot afford a fan or air-conditioning. For 26 years, the Fan Drive has served low-income seniors, adults with disabilities and families with children. Funds raised during the Summer Fan Drive go to purchase fans for individuals and families who need help to beat the summer heat, to connect vulnerable people with important resources and to support Family Eldercare’s core services.
This is your time to make a difference! You can donate a fan or funds anytime during this month to help bring comfort to Central Texas.
