Project Cool is a city wide initiative addressing the need to provide relief from extreme summer temperatures for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities. Each year, hundreds of individuals are hospitalized for heat related illnesses and death due to increased temperatures during the summer months. Additionally, Project Cool aims to reduce utility costs by providing an alternative to air conditioning for those who may be living on a fixed income. Through a partnership with the City of San Antonio, United Way and the San Antonio Fire Department, Project Cool provides box fans to thousands of elderly and disabled individuals throughout San Antonio and surrounding areas. With multiple Project Cool sites located throughout the city of San Antonio, including Catholic Charities’ Guadalupe Community Center and several Catholic churches within the city, Project Cool is able to distribute fans through these sites to those most in need.
