Starting June 20, Mecklenburg County is offering free box fans to residents aged 60 and older and adults aged 18-59 who receive disability income. This initiative aims to help vulnerable populations stay cool during the summer months. Interested individuals can register online or by calling one of the eight designated pickup locations.

Fans will be available for pickup beginning June 26 at various recreation centers across Charlotte and nearby areas. Walk-up requests will not be accepted, and individuals must present a valid ID showing proof of age and residency. This program is funded through a grant from Duke Energy Carolinas.
