AIR CONDITIONERS NEEDED

The Mental Health Association of Morris County needs our help.  With the hot weather quickly approaching they are in great need of new or used window air conditioners (5,000- 8,000 BTUs).  Their clients are on medications that can affect body heat which can lead to heat related illnesses.  It is important for them to stay cool when there are periods of high temperatures and humidity. Due to their limited income or no income, they cannot afford to purchase air conditioners.  If you can help, please contact Sue Browse at thebrowses@msn.com
