Beat the Heat Fan Drive

Volunteers and organizers with the annual Beat the Heat fan drive donated collected fans to Tri-County Community Action and Mission Carthage in 2018.

The Panola County Sheriff’s Office and area healthcare facilities are hosting their annual fan drive for Mission Carthage and Tri-County Community Action through June 30.

Fans will be given to people in need to help them get through the summer months. The groups are collecting box fans, tabletop fans, oscillating fans and more.

“This year especially, there are those in our county who are having trouble paying their bills due to a partial or total loss of income caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the group said. “For those who are able and looking for a way to help others, please consider donating at least one fan!”
