“Glen Ledger, Executive Director of the United Christian Care Center of Vidor, picks up a pallet of brand new box-fans off a flat bed truck trailer with the Care Center’s forklift. The pallet, with thirty brand new box-fans, is a donation to the people of Vidor from Entergy Texas.

It’s become an annual tradition that our electric utility company, Entergy Texas, makes a donation of box fans to area social services organizations at the beginning of every summer. And this year is no exception. On Monday morning, flat-bed trucks departed Entergy Texas Service Centers to make the drive to thirty-one Texas communities in twenty-seven counties to deliver some 1,300 brand new, still in the box, box-fans to non-profit and governmental social service agencies for distribution to their clients in need.

In Vidor, the Entergy Texas truck made a stop at the United Christian Care Center at 293 Wilson St. to drop off a stack of thirty new box-fans.

“I know we are delivering new box-fans here today at the United Christian Care Center and we are dropping some off at the Salvation Army in Orange, “ said Jim Malain, Entergy Texas Customer Service Manager for Orange County, “those are the two non-profit that we are donating fans to in Orange County. But we are also providing free new floor fans to eleven other communities in six southeast Texas counties. And that’s just part of our give-away in Texas today.”
