The annual Summer Fan Drive is not successful without community partners. There are several ways in which you can get involved

  • Donate Fans or Funds.

    In 2016, Family Eldercare delivered over 6,000 fans across 14 counties and we are anticipating that we will deliver more this year.

    As Central Texas’ senior population continues to swell at one of the fastest rates in the nation, your support is more critical than ever. Please consider making a donation of a NEW 20” box fan, a NEW 12” oscillating fan OR a financial contribution this year.

    KIDS! Family Eldercare is looking for talented youth to become Kid Captains for our 27th Annual Summer Fan Drive. As Kid Captains, children have the opportunity to learn about philanthropy while they practice leadership and communication skills.

    What’s a fan drive? Kid Captains create and lead youth teams that collect fans or funds to help families that cannot afford to purchase a fan to stay cool in the searing Texas summer heat. Family Eldercare provides tips and guides for having a successful team drive.

    Have fun at Threadgill’s for free! Youth teams are invited to kick off their team drives or drop off their donations on Fan Fare Friday, 6/17/16, at Threadgill’s World Headquarters.  Enjoy live music and fun all day.
