PEMBROKE — Beginning Tuesday, Duke Energy Progress will offer free fans to the elderly across Robeson County as part of Operation Fan Heat Relief.
The fans will be distributed through the Lumber River Council of Governments and the Area Agency on Aging in Pembroke. In order to receive the fans, a person must be at least 60 years old, have a valid form of state-issued identification and live in a situation where extended high temperatures may pose a threat to their health and well-being.
Because of a limited quantity of fans available, people who received fans last year are not eligible to receive another fan this year.
The fans will be available for pickup on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 30 CJ Walker Road in Pembroke. For information, call 910-618-5533.
