For 28 years Family Eldercare’s Summer Fan Drive has provided outreach and relief to some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
The idea is simple: an inexpensive fan to help provide some relief from the searing Texas heat. That simple idea has engaged our community in one of the largest efforts of its kind in the nation, and helped to boost the year-round mission of Family Eldercare.
In 2017, we distributed over 6,500 fans across 14 counties!
Thanks to community support, the Summer Fan Drive provides outreach and relief services for FOUR of the hottest months of the year (May 1 – August 31), and is an important source of support for our year-round programs and services.
The Austin-Round Rock metro area has the fastest population growth for pre-seniors (55-64) in the nation, and the second-fastest growth rate for seniors 65 and older! Your support has never been more important.
As Central Texas’ senior population continues to swell at one of the fastest rates in the nation, your support is more critical than ever. Please consider making a donation of a NEW 20” box fan, a NEW 12” oscillating fan OR a financial contribution this year.
