Fans for Seniors

Our Fans for Seniors event helps provide older adults at least age 60 living in Cumberland County with a free fan. This happens every summer from June through August and lasts as long as fans are available. Primary funding is received from the NC Division of Aging & Adult Services/Duke Energy Progress. Monetary donations and fans from groups and individuals supplement the program.

Want to help a senior in need? We accept monetary donations for fans and fans themselves (preferably 20 inch box fans) may be delivered to our offices. All donations are tax deductible.

To request a fan, call our main number: 910-484-0111. Fans can be picked up Monday through Thursday 8am-3pm. Must have a valid photo ID.


Cumberland County Council on Older Adults was established in 1968 as a non-profit organization and fifty-three years later we remain committed to our original mission of helping older adults living in Cumberland County maintain their independence at home with dignity.
