COAbc provides HEAT RELIEF in the form of box fans and air conditioners to at-risk seniors. This year the demand is even greater as these individuals are increasingly isolated under strict pandemic guidance to remain at home. These vulnerable adults often struggle to make ends meet, choosing between paying bills and spending money on food, and are often uncertain or weary about where to turn for help. Allow us to support our neighbors by purchasing this equipment, providing safe delivery, and installing ACs with COVID precautions. The trained social service professionals are here to serve and we need your support!


For a donation of $30 you can provide a box fan and have it delivered to a homebound at-risk senior.


For a donation of $190 you can provide an air conditioner, installed by Council on Aging  Minor Home Repair staff with a doctor’s recommendation. 

Your $100 donation allows us to provide essential service, such as:

  • 4.5 hours of Respite Care or

  • 20 meals at our dining sites or
