Cool-Down St. Louis Launches SOS, Save Our Seniors Program

June 01, 2018 - 8:20 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Heat-Up St. Louis is still working to pay off utility bills for needy residents throughout St. Louis and the Metro East after one of the harshest winters in several years.

Meantime, the flip-side of that program, Cool-Down St. Louis, is launching its SOS, Save Our Seniors program later today.

The summer-long project provides utility assistance; outreach education and new energy efficient and slightly used donated AC window units to seniors, the disabled and the needy throughout the region.

During a kick-off event Ameren Missouri and Vatterott will announce financial and resource tools to help keep the area's most vulnerable safe from heat-related illness.
