2018 "FANS FOR THE ELDERLY" Donation Drive 

Date of Release: Friday, May 18, 2018

[Reidsville, N.C.]-The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Rockingham Rescue Mission, is collecting FANS FOR THE ELDERLY again this year through August 15th.  Fans donated must be new in the box, and UL approved in order to be redistributed to someone in need.  Used fans, regardless of condition, cannot be accepted.

Donated fans can be dropped off 24/7 at the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office located at 170 N.C. 65 Reidsville, N.C. or they can be given directly to the Rockingham Rescue Mission located at 3692 N.C. 14 Reidsville, N.C. (Red Cross Building), or at their Eden location at 618 Early Ave, Eden, N.C., during their normal business hours.  Those wishing to donate that cannot make it to one of these locations can flag down a Deputy working in their area or call the Sheriff's Office non-emergency number at 336-634-3232 to arrange for the Deputy in your area to stop by and pick up your donation in-between calls for service.

Fans donated to the Sheriff’s Office will be given to the Rockingham Rescue Mission for dissemination to our elderly Rockingham County Neighbors 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.

Please help us help our neighbors in need by donating a new, UL approved fan today!

AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE - The Rockingham Rescue Mission will be the point of distribution for the collected fans this year.
