A big day for several dozen local families as their free air conditioners have arrived!
Volunteers helped load them up today in a partnership between Ameren Illinois and
Peoria Citizens Committee for Economic Opportunity, also known at PCCEO.
Along with the Salvation Army, they’re now distributing 75 free window units in greater Peoria.
“Coming out today, being selected to receive an air conditioner, oh Lord, which is a blessing! The impending heat that’s coming on, you know already we’re going through some hot spells at this point,” said Earley Johnson, one of the recipients on Friday.
Ameren will donate a total of 500 air conditioners this year.
