28th Annual LifeCare Alliance Beat the Heat Fan Campaign

The LifeCare Alliance logo with the tagline "Being There Matters™" beneath it
The Beat the Heat Fan Campaign benefits Central Ohio’s most vulnerable residents during periods of extreme heat. Since this annual drive began, LifeCare Alliance has collected and distributed more than 22,000 fans!
Older adults, people with a chronic illness, and homebound individuals are more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. A simple box fan can lower a room’s temperature by 10 degrees and save lives.

Next Public Fan Distribution: Tuesday, July 18 2-3pm as supplies last
670 Harmon Ave


  1. Purchase a new Box fan from your nearest retailer and drop it off at a Franklin County fire station close to you (fans must be new-in-box due to safety concerns).
  2. You can also order a fan through our Amazon wish list, and the fan will be sent directly to us.
  3. Donate to the Beat the Heat Fan Campaign. Do so online here, or mail your check to LifeCare Alliance, 1699 West Mound Street, Columbus, OH 43223. Make sure to mention the Beat the Heat Fan Campaign on your check.
  4. Volunteer to pick up fans from fire stations and bring them to our Harmon Avenue facility. Contact Anne Peters, In-Kind Coordinator, at fans@lifecarealliance.org to get involved.
