From the Horry County Police Department:
The Horry County Police Department is excited to announce the new "FANtastic Seniors" program for our senior citizens in need of relief from the summer heat. Our officers often respond to calls for service and observe situations where an elderly person does not have the financial resources to keep their home cool in the summer. Over the last several weeks the Horry County Police Department's Community Outreach Team has work diligently to secure donations from several local businesses to make this program possible.
Currently, we have approximately one hundred (100) fans to give to seniors citizens who are over the age of fifty-five (55+) and do not have the financial means to purchase a fan. We ask that if you are a senior citizen, or know any senior citizens, who fit into the above criteria, please call the Horry County Police Department at 843-915-8340. We will send a Community Outreach Officer to assess the need and deliver a fan.
