Heat Relief Program
If an older adult is immobile, has difficulty walking, or lacks means of transportation, a family member, caregiver or neighbor can pick up the fan for him as long as they have proper proof of age and residency and can describe the senior’s home situation.
This year the Edgecombe County Office on Aging has received fans from Progress Energy and will be purchasing more with a recent donation from Edgecombe-Martin County Electric Membership Corporation.
The Edgecombe County Office on Aging is asking all citizens to help spread the word about this Heat Relief Program in their neighborhood, church and business communities. The office is located on the second floor of the county administrative building at 201 St. Andrew St. in Tarboro.
- The telephone number to call if you have questions is 252-641-5831.
