09 fans croppedThe Department of Social Services is seeking box fans to distribute to eligible citizens this summer through the Fan Giveaway Program. The program provides relief to residents who do not have access to air conditioning during hot summer months. 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.
Citizens eligible for the Fan Giveaway Program are those individuals whose income falls below 200% of the current poverty level or 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. DSS is located at 1225 Ramsey St.
