This year’s Fan Program will run May 1 – August 30
Every year, VAC collaborates with KOMU-TV NBC Fan Club and Lowe’s to provide fans for low-income families during the hot summer months. Clients must be Boone County residents who live at a permanent residence and meet all VAC qualifications for general services.
Eligible clients may only receive a new fan every other year. Households that received a fan in 2018 may be eligible for a used fan if any are available during the 2019 Program. Fans given to families are provided solely through the donation of fans or funds to buy fans. In 2018 over 385 fans were given out to households in need.
VAC is able to provide these fans thanks to our generous donors. If you would like to help this crucial summer program there are several options:
- Purchase a new fan and drop it off at Lowe’s Home Improvement Store in Columbia or the VAC office at 403A Vandiver Dr
- Donate a gently used fan by dropping it off at Lowe’s Home Improvement Store in Columbia or the VAC office
- Donate money for VAC to purchase new fans by stopping by our office, calling 573-874-2273 or clicking here.
Please call 573-874-2273 to learn about documents required to receive a fan or for further information.
