ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Nearly 40 fans will be given to area families that are in need this summer that otherwise would not have a fan.

The fans were delivered to the Orangeburg County Law Enforcement Complex on Thursday by the Central Carolina Association of Realtors.

The fans delivered are part of a three-county effort throughout Orangeburg, Lexington, and Richland counties.

The fans have two goals, "one is to assist the citizens of Orangeburg County and also to give some folk a chance to meet law enforcement," says Orangeburg Realtor Jesse Kinard.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said he is thankful for the donation that will go into some homes that otherwise may not have seen a fan otherwise.

"This is just a blessing to be able to reach out to folk with something genuinely needed as the ," he said. "On behalf of the community and the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office, we thank these Realtors for their generosity."
