MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

MLGW kicks off its "Play it Cool" program Tuesday, May 10, 2016 to help keep seniors cool as the hotter summer months approach.

Two hundred window air-conditioning units are being donated to qualified low-income seniors and disabled residents of Shelby County. To qualify, applicants must be a resident of Shelby County, a low-income senior 60 years of age or older, and without operable air conditioning.

Once an individual is screened and pre-qualifies, they will be issued a pre-qualification voucher to verify that the applicant has met the guidelines up to the field inspection. Field inspections will be conducted by MLGW to verify that the residence meets installation requirements.  

To apply, applicants will need the following credentials on hand:

  • Tennessee State ID or Driver’s License to verify age and address.
  • The most recent pay stub or Social Security Income statement to verify income.

Neighborhood Christian Center will host a screening and application process for the free units Tuesday, at 785 Jackson Avenue, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. You can also get details on who's eligible for the program by calling (901) 881-6013.
