Summer Fan Drive


2016 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 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. 



Form a Team Drive


Even though Fan Fare Friday is over, Family Eldercare needs monetary support and fans to help some of Central Texas’ most vulnerable stay cool. July, August and September are the hottest months of the year, so it’s never too late to form your own Fan Drive Team!

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.


Thanks to the support of the Central Texas community, nearly 6,313 fans were given to those in need in 2015.
