You can help fight lung disease — and make sure your house is free of asbestos — with a $20 donation.
The Manitoba Lung Association and Winnipeg Air Testing have joined to help with home air testing.
The Lung Association says if you make a $20 donation during its one-day blitz at three locations on Nov. 23, you will be given an asbestos testing kit worth $50 in return.
Once the testing kit is taken home and used, the material used will be tested and the results posted on a website with an identifying code which only the homeowner will know.
The Lung Association says many older residential homes have asbestos in wall plaster, ceiling stipple and pipe insulation and it can become airborne during home renovations.
The testing kits will be available for picking up on Nov. 23, at both the Grant Park Shopping Centre and the Wal-Mart near Polo Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the St. Vital Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
For more information call the Lung Association at 204-774-5501, Ext. 231.
