The Cumberland County Department of Social Services is providing a free box fan for eligible citizens through the Fan Giveaway Program. The program provides relief to residents who do not have access to air conditioning during hot summer months.

Citizens eligible for the Fan Giveaway Program must be individuals with income which falls below 200% of the current poverty level or have a family member in the home under the age of 2, over the age of 60, or with a heat sensitive medical condition. 

Call 910-677-2388 or 910-677-2389 to speak with a social worker and have an assessment completed. Eligible citizens will be given a date, time, and location for fan pick up.  

The Department of Social Services is located at 1225 Ramsey Street and is open to the public. Anyone entering the building is asked to wear a mask or face covering and observe social distancing.
