State Representative Wendell Gilliard (D-West Ashley) announced that Project Cool Breeze is distributing 100 air-conditioning units from 4 to 6 pm Wednesday at the West Ashley Lowe’s store, 3125 Glenn McConnell Parkway. Gilliard, who founded the non-profit 20 years ago, estimates that more than 15,000 cooling units have been distributed to the elderly poor in the tri-county area. The organization received a national community service award signed by President Obama in 2012. The City of Charleston administers Project Cool Breeze.
