ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, NC – The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Rockingham Rescue Mission, is collecting Fans for the Elderly through August 16.
Fans donated must be new in the box and UL approved in order to be redistributed to someone in need.
The sheriff's office says used fans, regardless of condition, cannot be accepted.
Donated fans can be dropped off 24/7 at the sheriff’s office located at 170 N.C. 65 in Reidsville, N.C.
During normal business hours, they can dropped off at Rockingham Rescue Mission located at 3692 N.C. 14 in Reidsville, N.C. (Red Cross Building) or their Eden location at 618 Early Avenue.
Those wishing to donate that cannot make it to one of these locations, can flag down a Deputy or call the sheriff's office non-emergency number at 336-634-3232 to arrange a pick up in-between calls for service.
Fans donated to the sheriff’s office will be given to the Rockingham Rescue Mission for dissemination to the elderly in need, giving those without the means a way to beat the heat this summer.
Those who are requesting to receive a donated fan should contact the Rockingham County Rescue Mission at 336-623-2133 to see if they qualify.
The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office asks that you please help them help those in need by donating a new, UL approved fan today!
