MLGW's Project MAX Program to Assist Customers in Frayser Saturday
July 19, 2012

On Saturday, more than 100 volunteers are expected to help make home improvements for senior and physically-challenged customers in Frayser as part of MLGW’s Project MAX, a community service program created by MLGW employees.

Volunteers with MLGW and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department will meet at Union Grove Baptist Church, 2285 Frayser Blvd on Saturday, July 21. Registration starts at 8 a.m.; the work begins at 8:30 a.m. and will continue until about noon.

Volunteers will replace water heaters, install 3 window air-conditioning units, caulk and weatherize eight homes, build four wheelchair ramps and hand-out over 400 small energy kits throughout the neighborhood. The event is sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Delta Builders, Miller Plumbing, Complete Electrical Service, Jones Plumbing and Neeley’s BBQ.

Project MAX was started by MLGW employees in 1984; the program helps more than 120 customers in need each year. Through MLGW's Project MAX program, MLGW employees and other volunteers weatherize homes and build wheelchair ramps for elderly and low-income customers in Memphis.
