About Us

2012 Recipient

Project Cool Breeze was founded in May 1999 by State Representative Wendell Gilliard to create an environment of unity and hope for the betterment of communities. For over 20 years, The City of Charleston has partnered with Project Cool Breeze to better establish a trusting relationship amongst the Police department and local community members. With said partnership, the Charleston police department assisted with application process and annual distribution of units to seniors.

A Special thank you to Live 5 news for providing coverage over the years. This year, we are practicing social distancing. Distributions are taking place outside at Lowe’s West Ashley parking lot. All distributions are by appointment only.

Last year Project Cool Breeze celebrated the 20th year Anniversary for providing air condition units and fans to seniors. Please note: Our contact information for applicants and donations has since changed since video publication.

Through out the years, Project Cool Breeze has provided over 9,000 units to seniors. With ongoing generous donations from our many sponsors and dedicated volunteers, we continue to help prevent seniors from losing their lives due to extreme heat exhaustion.

Obstacles cause distractions, eliminate obstacles – no more distractions. The power to achieve all that you want in this world begins with a measure of hope. Obstacles may be minimal or extreme, but hope will cause you to be resilient. Project Cool Breeze provides the open door for hope.

Project Cool Breeze is appreciative of the many outlets working with us to better service the community.
