Project ElderCoolThank you for making a difference.
Project ElderCool is Bishop Sullivan Center’s annual effort to help our elderly and disabled neighbors find refuge from the summer’s deadly heat.
Since Project ElderCool began in 2000, over 5,600 low-income individuals in the KC metro area have found refuge from the heat thanks to a free air conditioner from Project ElderCool.
When we are asked to help, an individual has no air conditioning at all. We often find they have been drawing the shades and relying on fans to get by, but their room is still usually nearing 90° degrees.
You can help an elderly neighbor or person with a respiratory disability survive the summer.
$250 will cover an air conditioner along with delivery and installation in the recipient’s home.
Providing $150 will help pay their electric bill and offset the cost to run their new air conditioner.
If you or someone you know needs an air conditioner, please review the Project ElderCool guidelines and contact us to apply for this program.
