The first of five brand new air conditioning units sponsored by Forever Giving was installed this past week in one of the homes that Save the Family Foundation of Arizona operates as temporary housing units for homeless, working poor families. Replacing an extremely inefficient unit that was over 20 years old and in constant need of repair, the new A/C unit will provide huge savings on energy costs and do a much better job of keeping the house cool; providing a comfortable living environment for not only the family currently living there, but the many families that will be occupying the house in the future.
The purchase and installation of this unit was made possible by a donation Forever Giving made to Save the Family in August, a portion of which would sponsor the purchase of five new a/c units that will serve over 20 families over the course of 15 years.
It’s always incredible to see the generous support of our donors in action. “Thank you all so much for the amazing gift you gave us in August and all it will do for our families!" - Tim Lidster, Community Outreach Manager for Save the Family.
