Greenville Utilities is helping take the heat off some local residents by purchasing fans for those in need. The fans were delivered to the Council on Aging and the Department of Social Services on June 25. For 22 years, GUC has provided fans to be distributed to the elderly, handicapped and qualifying families with small children.
"The heat and humidity of eastern North Carolina summers can create a real hardship for many families who suffer because of lack of air conditioning or fans," said Tony Cannon, General Manager/CEO of Greenville Utilities. "Fans are an economical way to get some relief from the heat, and we are pleased to provide them as a gesture of community support."
