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.

   Local leaders have put out the call to those in need and to those who can help. Cool Down St. Louis and Ameren kicked off their annual summer program to keep elderly and disabled St. Louisans safe from the deadly heat.

   Ameren donated the first 240 air conditioners with the hope that more units will be donated and more money raised to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.

   St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says donations are critical to this program's success.  "It is important to note that eventually, all the funds will be exhausted this year," Slay said.  "And remind you that 100 percent of proceeds, 100 percent of private donations go directly to helping someone in need. There are no administrative costs that come out of our donations."
