Here’s where you can donate a fan to Fran’s Fans

Fran's Fans

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Even though we are not able to host Fran’s Fans the traditional way this year, you can help keep senior citizens cool this summer!

In previous years, WECT’s Frances Weller would head to Walmarts around the area to collect fans to donate to senior citizens in need.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, these in-store appearances are not possible.

So we’re asking you to drop off a brand new box fan at one of these locations:
