Project Cool Breeze “Keeping seniors cool during the hot summer months

In 2021, Project Cool Breeze provided over 500+ fans and/or a/c units to seniors within the low country and surrounding areas during pandemic. For the past 2 years PCB moved the distribution outdoors to provide a safe process for seniors and volunteers. All of which would not have been possible without the ongoing sponsorship from Dominion Energy, Boeing, Lowe’s West Ashley, Palmetto Goodwill Industries, Nucor, local radio and television stations, churches and more! We thank you for your continued dedication towards our initiatives. We continue to welcome additional sponsors and volunteers to better service communities.

Project Cool Breeze continues to serve communities in need. In 2020, Project Cool Breeze has gained new partnerships with new organizations and continues to seek additional sponsors to help expand the reach for providing food and resources to deserving communities in rural areas. To date, many seniors, many homeless, and many of the less fortunate were provided the necessary resources to keep them cool, warm, healthy, alive and last but not least – filled with hope. We continue to extend the invitation to all those seeking to help in any way.

Project Cool Breeze is a not for profit organization. All donations and funding is applied towards the mentioned initiatives.

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.
