2013 EPB Fan Fund underway

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- EPB's annual Fan Fund is now underway. It's a way for neighbors to help others beat the heat that is traditionally headed our way in a few months.

A $20 donation buys a fan for a family or individual in need. Summer heat can be dangerous for people without air conditioning; primarily, children, elderly and people with chronic health conditions.

Your donation helps:
   

  • United Way 2-1-1 identifies local residents in need
  • EPB uses donations to buy fans from Ace Hardware at a special low rate
  • EPB and Ace Hardware employees deliver fans to families


If you know someone who may qualify for help from EPB Fan Fund 2013, call United Way 2-1-1 or (423) 265-8000 between May 3 and June 28.

To make a secure on-line donation please go to www.epb.net/fanfund. Checks can be mailed to EPB Marketing, P.O. Box 182255, Chattanooga, TN 37422.  Please make checks payable to EPB Fan Fund.

EPB Fan Fund 2013 will help to improve the quality of life for many people in our community.

You can also help people in need throughout the year by donating to the EPB Power Share program that supports local families who are struggling to pay their basic utility bills.

To learn more call EPB at (423) 648-1372 or go visit the EPB Community Power Share site.
