WHY A FAN DRIVE? The Texas summer heat creates a major health risk for older adults without air conditioning or the money to run their AC units. To help seniors in the Highland Lakes stay cool, the annual Eldercare Fan Drive collects box fans and money to purchase box fans for seniors in Burnet and Llano counties and Liberty Hill in Williamson County. In recent years, more than 200 fans have been collected and distributed to qualifying residents. This annual event is a partnership between Older Adults Rural Services and KXAN-TV in Austin.
