Social Services receives additional donated fans
Centenary United Methodist Church donated an additional 31 fans to Operation Fan Heat Relief at the Forsyth County Department of Social Services.
The fans were delivered on August 10. To date, the church has donated 52 fans to the program. Last month, more than 150 fans were distributed by Social Services staff to Forsyth County adults who are age 60 and older, or who have a disability, with a home situation where a threat to health and well-being exists. The additional fans will be distributed to those on the program’s waitlist.
Operation Fan Heat Relief (OFHR) is a summer program intended to provide a more comfortable living environment and reduce heat related illnesses. The program is funded by the Piedmont Triad Regional Council’s Area Agency on Aging (through a contribution from Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress). Fans were also purchased using Forsyth County funds.
