Family Eldercare’s 28th Annual #SummerFanDrive
WHY:Buy a fan, save a life.It’s really that simple. Texas summers are life-threateningly hot – especially for seniors, kids, and the medically fragile. And unfortunately:
- 75% of the folks Family Eldercare serves cannot afford to run their air conditioners
- 1 in 4 people don’t have an AC or it’s broken
- These same folks – seniors, kids, the medically fragile – have a harder time recovering once they get hot, making them even more at risk for heat stroke and life-threatening heat related illnesses
- A simple box fan can lower your core body temperature by 8 degrees – preventing heat related illnesses and saving lives!
- Fans cost only 8 cents a day to run! They lower electricity bills and keep people safe and healthy.WHAT:Family Eldercare’s 28th Annual #SummerFanDrive and their biggest fundraiser: #FansFromFans THIS WEEK!
