Here at McCullough Heating & Air Conditioning, we support Austin with more than just HVAC services. We find meaningful ways to give back to our community. One event that is very important to our entire team is the Family Eldercare Summer Fan Drive.
With our support, this non-profit organization is able to meet the previously unmet needs of Austin’s elders and adults with disabilities. Keep reading to learn more.
About Family Eldercare
Family Eldercare is an organization that supports adults that do not have a caregiver, advocate, or guardian when they need one the most. Specifically, the group provides services to prevent the abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of elderly adults and adults with disabilities. Family Eldercare also provides education and training resources. In short, Family Eldercare takes care of those who may not have someone looking out for them.
The Summer Fan Drive
Family Eldercare identified a need in our community, discovering that many low-income elders in Austin are living without air conditioning or even fans in their homes. This increases the risk of heat stroke and other heat-related afflictions.
So, Family Eldercare organizes the annual Summer Fan Drive. During the drive, residents and businesses can donate affordable fans for these seniors – or donate funds so the organization can buy fans. In recent years, over 7,000 fans have been distributed to seniors in the Austin-Round Rock metro area.
McCullough and the Summer Fan Drive
As a company that is in the business of helping people cool off, the Summer Fan Drive is near and dear to our hearts here at McCullough. Each year we choose a new way to get involved with this important effort!
McCullough Heating & Air Conditioning is proud to be a Tower Fan Sponsor for the 2020 Summer Fan Drive. The Summer Fan Drive is just one of the Family Eldercare events that McCullough is supporting this year. In 2020, we have donated over $30,000 to support the efforts of this organization.
