Project Cool Breeze kicks off on Friday, May 20 in the City of Charleston. This is the 17th year of the project which works to make sure those in need, especially the elderly, have access to fans or air conditioning units during the summer.
The project will kick off at noon at the Mayor’s office in City Hall located at 80 Broad Street, downtown Charleston.
About Project Cool Breeze
In 1999, Councilman Wendell Gilliard started Project Cool Breeze to provide new fans and air conditioners to elderly persons, sixty years of age or older, in the Tri-County area in response to a number of heat-related deaths.
With the growing number of seniors, particulary those on low fixed incomes, it is more important than ever that the community and local businesses support Project Cool Breeze.
