Some receive "cool" gift from Ameren

DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) -- Some people won't have to suffer through the heat any longer. Ameren Illinois partnered with Community Action Agency to donate window air conditioners Tuesday morning.

A raffle chose 50 families, seniors and those with disabilities to give them the gift of cool air on one of the hottest days so far this year.

Shanika Erving says her home doesn't have central air and this has been a blessing for her family. Ameren is donating 500 more air conditioning units throughout the state this summer.

It's donated more than 1,000 since the program started in 2013.
