Air conditioner program is underway

June 13, 2008

REACH's Faith in Action program is seeking donations of new and/or gently used air conditioners, in good working order.

High heat can cause adverse health effects for many senior citizens, infants and people who suffer from heart disease, lung disease, cancer, AIDS/HIV, or other life-threatening illnesses.

Some people cannot afford to provide air conditioning for themselves or their loved one.

Donated air conditioners must be window-type, room size, operate off 110 volt current and have all knobs, switches and expansion panels.

REACH is also accepting funds to buy new air conditioners. Mail donations to Faith in Action, in care of REACH Caregivers, 140 W. Franklin St.,Suite 300, Hagerstown, MD 21740.
