Charlotte Mecklenburg Senior Centers Need More Fans

Due to the record breaking heat wave Charlotte is experiencing, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Senior Centers have run out of fans to distribute to seniors across Mecklenburg County. The waiting list for fans grows daily. Please support our seniors by making a financial donation of $16 or by donating a new fan so that we can continue to support the need for the 2012 Heat Relief Program. We can only extend this year’s program with the generosity of friends like you. Your donation may save the life of a senior during this record summer heat

20″ box fans move air that cools the body through the evaporation process. Many seniors are too scared to open windows or use screen doors to provide circulation to cool their homes and their bodies. In addition, senior bodies do not cool as well as younger bodies; individuals with COPD and congestive heart failure are more at risk for hospitalization in higher temperatures.

You may send or drop off your donation at:
