ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Heat Up St. Louis will mark another year of its life-saving effort to keep area residents warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

KMOX will be honored to receive the Rolling in the Dough Award for helping heat up/cool down St. Louis during the organization's annual meeting. We're getting it for our help during the winter, including our involvement in Hardee's Rise N Shine, which raised more than $400,000 last February.

Also being honored will be St. Louis Fire Department Captains Garon Mosby and Leon Whitener. They're receiving the "Public Safety Award” for their efforts to educate area residents and installing air conditioners.

Overall, Heat Up (Cool Down) St. Louis raised just under $2 million last year, helping about 100 thousand low income, elderly and disabled families in Missouri and Illinois with utility bills and air conditioners.
