This time of the year when the weather starts to get hot many folks living in very modest conditions often suffer in the heat. Many live in homes with inoperative Air Conditioning units or they may have moved into a place without one. Several volunteers in the Expanding The Table mission over the course of the past week were approached by guests with stories of having no AC. One had moved to a new place without it, another had their unit fail during a power surge during a lightning storm and another had been without one for a couple of years and was asking if we could possibly assist. Thankfully Change for a Dollar had not had a request for assistance in a couple of weeks and there was just enough funds to cover the three units. The air conditioners were delivered to folks at the meal serving site and several of the other guests offered to assist with their installations.
