Due to yesterday’s inclement weather, Neighborhood Christian Center will accept applications and screen eligible households for heaters or blankets at 785 Jackson Ave. on Thursday, January 17 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. A total of 100 space heaters and 100 blankets will be available. Yesterday’s screening ended early due to the weather conditions. MLGW and the Neighborhood Christian Center are teaming again this year to assist qualified low-income seniors and physically challenged residents of Shelby County through the “Power of Warmth” Program. The program provides space heaters and electric blankets to eligible MLGW customers.
To qualify for the Power of Warmth Program, applicants must be a resident of Shelby County as well as disabled and/or a low-income senior, age 60 or older. To apply, applicants will need the following credentials on hand:
· Tennessee State ID or Drivers License to verify age and address.
· The most recent pay stub or Social Security Income statement to verify income.
· If you have a physical disability but do not meet the age requirement, you must bring the
proper certification information.
Customers may contact the Neighborhood Christian Center’s hotline number at (901) 881-6013 for a pre-recorded message detailing the necessary qualifications and credentials for eligibility.
