Beat the Heat

A/C Collection Drive and Fundraiser

Last summer, Tarrant County experienced at least one heat-related death per week during the summer. (Tarrant County Public Health, 2023)

Help protect our most vulnerable populations against dangerous temperatures by donating to our Beat the Heat air conditioner unit drive and fundraiser.

We’re raising funds to purchase A/C units to help older adults and disabled individuals without sufficient access to air conditioning keep cool and prevent serious illness during the hot summer months.

The Beat the Heat collection drive runs NOW through September 30.


Get Involved

  • DONATE money using the link below to purchase new A/C units
  • SPREAD THE WORD to your friends and neighbors to help save lives in Tarrant County!

Together, we can Get United to protect vulnerable populations against preventable heat-related deaths. Join us by giving below.

A $400 donation will cover the cost of purchasing and installing one A/C unit. To cover the cost of one unit, add $400 in the 'Other Amount' section.
