INDIANAPOLIS - Carrier Corp. is bringing some cool relief to those in need. The company has donated over 1,000 window air conditioner units to cities across the country experiencing sizzling temperatures as part of its second annual "Operation Heat Rescue" project. The relief effort covers nine markets: Philadelphia; Raleigh, N.C.; New York; Atlanta; St. Louis; Phoenix; Dallas; Indianapolis; and Chicago.

Temperatures soared in Indiana during the first week in August, making it feel over 100°F. To help people battle the heat, Carrier has donated 107 air conditioners to keep residents of central Indiana and surrounding areas cool.

"With the success of Operation Heat Rescue last year, we felt we should continue to support local communities with the resources we have to help keep them cool, comfortable, and healthy as they ride out the oppressive heat waves this summer," said Johnny Johnson, Carrier brand manager. "Our company has a long tradition of giving back to the community, and it makes us feel good to know that we've been able to help senior citizens, people with disabilities, and low-income families with this project."

WXIN-TV Fox Indianapolis has teamed up with the effort, choosing several nonprofit organizations including Community Action of Greater Indianapolis, Save the Youth Ministries, and the American Indian Center to be the recipients of the air conditioners. This contribution will help ensure that families in need in central Indiana and the surrounding areas stay cool the remainder of summer.

Carrier has donated its FCB Series window air conditioners. The units offer thru-the-wall or window installation, and provide comfort for rooms that are 100-400 square feet in size. The units are valued at $125 each.
