REIDSVILLE, NC – The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office and Rockingham Rescue Mission would like to thank the Bethany Volunteer Fire Department for their generous donation this year of over 150 fans to our "Fans for the Elderly" donation drive. “We thank all of the hardworking volunteer firefighters from the Bethany Fire Department for this wonderful donation", said Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page. "150+ fans will go a long way to helping those in need, but we still need more. It's hot outside this time of year, but imagine not being able to get any relief from the heat? Every year the need exceeds the supply, so we still need the public's help to donate fans so that our elderly neighbors in need can have a way to cool off a little during the summer months." Like the Eden FireFighters Association Local 2723, Chief Philip Butler of the Bethany Volunteer Fire Department also issued a challenge, specifically to the other volunteer fire departments in Rockingham County, to meet or beat Station 140's donation. The 2018 “Fans for the Elderly” donation drive runs through August 15. Donations can be made 24/7 at the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office located at 170 N.C. 65 in Reidsville, North Carolina.
