Four County EMC Donates Fans to Aid Senior Citizens

In southeast North Carolina, summer is a beautiful time of year, but the heat and humidity can be brutal. During our hot summer months, seniors living without air conditioning or circulating air are at higher risk of heat-related injuries.

Throughout May, Four County EMC delivered fans to agencies that serve senior citizens. In turn, these agencies donate these fans to elderly residents who are in need. “We are happy to help senior citizens stay cool this summer as the heat can be hazardous to their health,” explained Chris Ingram, Four County’s marketing supervisor.

Four County distributed fans to:

  • Duplin County Services for the Aged, Kenansville
  • Sampson County Department of Aging, Clinton
  • Garland Senior Center, Garland
  • Bladen County Division on Aging, Elizabethtown
  • Columbus County Department of Aging, Whiteville
  • Pender Adult Services, Burgaw

 

“The 28-year collaboration with Four County has been a huge blessing to so many seniors in Duplin County,” said Melisa Brown, director of the Duplin County Services for the Aged.

Four County EMC has been donating fans to local agencies for over 25 years. If you would like to donate a new fan, please contact a senior center near you.
