SAN ANTONIO - Summer heat is here in San Antonio, and sometimes it's easy to forget that many people live without air conditioning in their home.
The Will Fix It Cares Program has been on a mission to help people in need receive a new HVAC system for their home.
The recent winner for the Will Fix It Cares Program was the Rivera family, which has been living without air conditioning for a year. The family's nomination letter is shown below.
"My parents are elderly in their early 70's. They have been very independent and never live beyond their means. My dad is disabled and my mom retired from H-E-B about seven years ago to take care of my dad since he is diabetic and requires assistance on a daily basis. They have never been the type to ask for help and prefer to eat Saltines for dinner to ensure they pay their bills on time. Last year in November my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has been going through chemotherapy since January and things seemed to be going good. It has been very difficult for our family, but my mom is extremely positive and strong. Her spirits are amazing, we thank the Lord Jesus Christ. Two weeks ago they told me they have been living without AC for a year and they never told anyone because they didn't want to bother anyone. Hopefully we get blessed by God and are able to be considered to get a new AC unit for my parents." - Said a Rivera family member
