Fans available for seniors
This year the Rufty-Holmes Senior Center will sponsor Project Fan–Heat Relief. The center has received a generous allocation of regional funds from Duke Energy, enabling it to buy fans for seniors who may have health risks associated with the intense heat of summer.
The program begins now. If you need a free box fan for summer heat relief, please contact us at: 704-216-7700.
To be eligible:
• The person must be at least 60 years of age.
• He or she must be a resident of Rowan County.
• The senior must have a discernible need for a fan, such as having no air conditioning, or needing supplemental movement of air.
• The senior should not have received a fan through this program the previous year.
Eligible seniors may call to reserve a fan which can be picked up at the Rufty-Holmes Senior Center. The information needed is the name, address, phone number, age and date of birth for the person receiving the fan.
The Summer Fan Program runs through August. For additional information, please call the Rufty-Holmes Senior Center at 704-216-7700.
