Fan Donations Needed

The Department of Social Services is seeking box fans to distribute to eligible citizens this summer through the Fan Giveaway Program. DSS is accepting donations of new box fans from civic organizations, churches, businesses and individuals in the community.  The Social Services building is closed to the public so donors are asked to make an appointment to drop off fans. Call 910-677-2536 for more information about donating fans to DSS.

Citizens eligible for the Fan Giveaway Program are those individuals whose income falls below 200 percent of the current poverty level and who have a family member in the home under the age of 2, over the age of 60, or with a heat sensitive medical condition.  Citizens are asked to call 910-677-2388 or 910-677-2389 to speak with a social worker and have an assessment completed.  Eligible citizens will be given a date, time, and location for fan pick up.
