The fan donation is part of TXU Energy's Beat the Heat program in which they partner with community service organizations to help keep Texans cool and to promote heat safety awareness and energy conservation.

Registration is not required for this event.

Participants are to remain in their vehicle with emptied trunks so that staff members and volunteers can place food and a fan in the trunk.
