CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - Operation Fan Heat Relief is open for business and handing out fans to eligible residents around Cabarrus County this summer and into the fall as temperatures continue to rise.

Running through October 31, the program has relied on donations from local businesses and residents and was able to hand out 5,226 fans in 2018 statewide.
