AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Family Eldercare Summer Fan Drive is back this week, and as always, we need YOUR help, especially as brutal heat has settled over Central Texas this week.

Family Eldercare has been serving the Central Texas community for three decades now in one of the largest efforts of its kind dedicated to providing relief from the searing Texas heat for those in need. As temperatures continue to climb to unseasonable highs, this mission is more important than ever.

Want to get involved? You can make monetary donations HERE now through the end of August, or bring inexpensive box fans to Whittlesey Landscape Supplies locations and the KXAN studio on July 15 for the Fan Drop Off Event.

Fan Drop Off Event

  • When: July 15 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Where: Whittlesey Landscape Supplies and the KXAN studio. Locations found HERE.
  • What: Bring inexpensive box fans or monetary funds
  • Why: Because FANS SAVE LIVES.

Heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer, with seniors, people with disabilities and children at the highest risk. As temperatures continue to rise over the next few months, so will the need for fans, so we invite you to help us help Central Texans beat the heat.
