Goods for Good DC: Can you help beat the heat for those in need?

Elizabeth Workman

Only 10 days left to participate!

Are you ready for the DC heat? Ready to turn on your air conditioning for relief?

For thousands of low income residents living in Southeast DC who do not have, nor can afford, air conditioning, things are very different.

With DC’s heat and humidity, those apartments can easily reach 105 degrees, which is not only uncomfortable, but a health hazard. In particular, the elderly and very young are at risk of heat stroke, dehydration, fainting, and exacerbated health conditions like bronchitis and asthma. With the presence of Covid still, these are ailments that could be deadly.

G4G will partner with Furnish Hope and A Wider Circle to distribute fans to people and communities most in need. (See reasons why fans but not air conditioners)

Easy ways you can help (deadline May 31):

Realtor friends of G4G Julie Roberts, Pam Ryan Brye and Juliet Zucker presents: “Project Cool”

1.     Donate gently used pedestal or table top fans and drop at any Ally site (please make sure they work)
2.     Purchase selected fans on our Amazon wishlist (select Elizabeth as delivery address) or from any store and drop at any Ally site
3.     Sponsor 10 fans for $250. The cost of fans have gone up almost 20% from last year which makes fans even more unaffordable to those struggling. It also makes it even more important for us to receive donations that will allow us to buy bulk at lower costs.

All purchases or sponsorships are 100% tax deductible and you will receive a receipt (goods donations also receive a tax receipt).
