Through your generosity in part of the F.M. Kirby Foundation, we were able to purchase a new rooftop air conditioning unit and COVID-19 ventilation system. Cheshire’s residents suffer from a physical complication unique to people suffering from spinal cord injuries, which is a lack of body temperature control. Our ability to maintain a safe and comfortable temperature throughout the facility is essential, and your donation enabled us to make this critical equipment purchase. Cheshire Home’s eight rooftop air conditioning units are over 25 years old and run 24 hours a day.
Separate from the air conditioning units, we were able to purchase an air purification system that connects directly into the HVAC unit. This purification system with UV light rays removes 99% of odors, air pollutants, mold, bacteria, and viruses. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to helping those in need.
