Family Eldercare Summer Fan Drive

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 Summer 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.

The Summer Fan Drive relies on the support of more than 250 volunteers and 40+ community partners to ensure that thousands of requests are processed and fans are distributed promptly to individuals and families in need.

There are a number of ways to get involved in the Summer Fan Drive. For more information, please visit
