FANS FOR FRIENDS PROJECT
Sponsored by Trent Kinard, Bamberg County Council Vice Chairman
Let's make sure NO Bamberg county citizen is HOT this summer!
The goal is to collect 100 fans to distribute equally throughout Bamberg county.
Many Bamberg County citizens do not have air conditioning in their homes and are only able to open windows to escape the brutal South Carolina heat. We can make a difference by donating fans to our citizens, as the summer heat can be extremely dangerous to their health.
How can you help? Donate a fan or make a monetary donation for the cost of a fan ($12-18 dollars for one inexpensive fan). In addition to a personal donation, consider inviting your churches, organizations, and schools to contribute to the "Fans for Friends" project!
How to Donate - Please click here to download the donation form:
