In the first week of summer, the heat index is already flirting with triple digits.
Ameren Missouri is trying to help low-income and elderly customers stay safe in the heat--they are giving away air conditioner window units through charities. Ameren is donating 665 units to several organizations and agencies. 300 of the units are going to the Urban League of St. Louis.
To request one, city residents can call 314-615-3624 if you’re a city resident, and county residents should dial 314-388-9840.
