Fan Care is a public-private partnership sponsored by Dominion and administered by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services that helps low-income older citizens in Virginia keep cool during summer months.
The program provides one free fan to elderly Virginians who live within Dominion’s service area and who meet eligibility requirements. Local Area Agencies on Aging administer Fan Care by screening applicants and distributing fans. A list of participating agencies is available by contacting the Virginia Department for the Aging at 1-800-552-3402.
Most of Dominion's donations to the Fan Care program go toward the purchase of fans. Funds also are available to agencies to purchase air-conditioners for clients with more serious health problems.
Dominion invites other businesses and municipalities to join as Fan Care partners. Tax-deductible contributions can be made to Fan Care by sending a check in any amount to the nearest Area Agency on Aging. Checks should be made payable to the agency.
