Park and Recreation Offers Free Fans to Seniors This Summer

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation is helping local seniors and adults who receive disability income stay cool this summer by offering free box fans.

Fans are available at eight locations. Mecklenburg County residents 60 years and older and adults ages 18 to 59 who receive disability income can register to pick up a fan while supplies last. Register for pickup online or by calling one of these locations. Walk-ups will not be accepted. 

Fans are limited to one per person. When picking up a fan, an individual must show a valid driver’s license or state ID providing proof of age and a current Mecklenburg County address. 

Fans are provided through a grant from Duke Energy Carolinas.
