ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. — Charlie’s Tropic Heating & Air Conditioning announced Lillie Bailey as the winner of the 2019 Bryant True Heroes award. In partnership with Bryant Heating & Cooling and Johnstone Supply, Charlie’s Tropic Heating & A/C will be installing a brand-new HVAC system and ductwork for her free of charge.

Lillie Bailey is 73 years old. Every day she takes care of a 54-year-old man with Down syndrome and her granddaughter, who has cerebral palsy.

Currently, Bailey’s home is being cooled with a single window A/C unit and being warmed with a small space heater. With this in mind, some of those closest to her felt she would make a great nominee for the Bryant True Hero award. They were right.

“We are so thankful our partnership with the Jumbo Shrimp helped us find Lillie,” said General Manager Amy O’Grady, Charlie’s Tropic Heating & Air Conditioning. “She is such a great example of a True Hero, putting her own needs second to others. She has never had Air Conditioning in her home, and we are honored to be the company that gets to change that for her.”
