When the weather turns hot, an electric fan can make a huge difference to someone living without air conditioning. And for those who have air conditioning but need to avoid high electric bills, using a fan in combination with the air conditioning allows them to tolerate a higher thermostat setting and hold down their consumption of electricity.
The Crisis Center’s Fan Club provides a great service by administering the purchase and distribution of electric fans. The costs of the fans are modest. The benefits are large. It feels great to help provide electric fans to those in need.
