Greater Texas CU Donates to Support Family Eldercare Fan Drive

GTFCU Staff Present Check

Austin-based Greater Texas Credit Union raised $1,000 for the Family Eldercare Summer Fan Drive. This money is in addition to the more than $154,000 and 600+ fans already raised throughout Central Texas. Family Eldercare’s goal is to distribute 7,000 fans through 2018.

Family Eldercare was founded in 1982 by a group of professionals concerned with supporting the family’s role as caregiver for frail elders. Starting with training and information, the agency expanded their services to preventing abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of elders and adults with disabilities.

Distribution has grown from 50 fans to frail elders in Austin in 1990 to an annual average distribution of 6,000 fans to low-income older adults, people with disabilities, and families with children in 12 Central Texas counties.

Family Eldercare carries out the Summer Fan Drive in collaboration with local media, businesses and corporations, and other social service providers, along with partnerships with 45 community distribution sites and teams of volunteers. Learn more or donate at summerfandrive.org.

Greater Texas Credit Union, known as Aggieland Credit Union in the College Station area, has 19 locations across Texas and has been serving Texans since 1952.
