Helping Central Ohio Beat the Heat

By May 20, 2024May 23rd, 2024eNewsletter, June 2024 Newsletter

At LifeCare Alliance, we have been committed to recognizing and meeting the needs of our clients and the Central Ohio community for over a century. In recent years, we have noticed a concerning trend. Individuals who are homebound due to aging, a medical condition, or disability are at a higher risk of experiencing heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

To address these concerns, we launched the Beat the Heat Fan Campaign over 20 years ago. Throughout the summer and into the fall, LifeCare Alliance collects and distributes over 2,000 box fans to our clients and residents of Franklin County to help people live with more security and self-reliance. For the past two decades, we’ve been fortunate to have an Alliance of dedicated volunteers, supporters, and partners help drive the campaign’s success.

The Beat the Heat Fan Campaign continually welcomes donations of boxed fans during the summer. New fans in their boxes can be dropped off at LifeCare Alliance or at a local fire station, where they serve as drop sites for the community.

If you are interested in getting involved, or have any questions about the Beat the Heat Fan Campaign, please contact Anne Peters at apeters@lifecarealliance.org.
