Summer heat can be extremely dangerous for the elderly and people without air conditioning. Help us provide fans to low income families and seniors by making a $15 donation to the 2012 Fan Fund. Your investment will help a local neighbor beat the heat.

You can Donate today on the Chattanooga Times Free Press website. Thank you for your generosity!

What is the Fan Fund?

The Fan Fund is an annual program to provide box fans to local residents who qualify for the program through United Way's 2-1-1.

  • United Way's 2-1-1 call center qualifies recipients for the fans
  • The Chattanooga Times Free Press collects donations online
  • Ace Hardware provides the fans at a low cost
  • EPB and Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union employees deliver the fans

How Can I Receive a Free Fan?

If you or someone you know is interested in applying for a free fan, contact United Way's 2-1-1 by dialing 211 or (423) 265-8000.

Giving is Always in Season

You can help those in need throughout the year by donating to the Power Share program, which is designed to support local families who may be struggling to pay their basic utility bills. Click here to learn more.
