    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Crisis Assistance Ministry in Charlotte typically provides up to 300 air conditioning units every year for people in need.

    Unfortunately, the nonprofit has run out of units.

    “Due to the hot temps early in the summer, we have run out of window A/C units really needed by the community,” said Liana Humphrey, Chief Marketing Officer at Crisis Assistance Ministry.

    The more units that are donated the more the agency can give away.

    “We always welcome donations of window A/C units, either new or gently used,” Humphrey said.

    Crisis Assistance Ministry can also help people struggling to pay utility bills.

    “So, if folks have higher than normal utility bills and are getting behind on payments, they can come here for emergency financial assistance,” Humphrey said.

    The nonprofit accepts donated A/C units at its furniture bank, located at 333 Dalton Avenue.
