Oklahoma City resident Irene Smith, 82, has been without heat for over a month. She had to turn off the old one because dangerous carbon monoxide was seeping out of it.
Her daughter and granddaughter have tried to make her comfortable during the month the house has been without heat.
“I make sure she’s got two or three blankets on her, because she is a diabetic, and I worry about her legs because she doesn’t walk,” her daughter explained to KFOR.
After being tipped off by a Salvation Army worker, the KFOR Oklahoma City In Your Corner team wanted to help. In January 2018, they surprised the widow at her house and gave her the news that she would no longer be without heat!
“So, we want to give you a brand-new heat and air system,” Scott Hines told Irene. As you’ll see in the footage below, the elderly woman immediately started to cry.
Irene, her daughter, and granddaughter would not have to wait long for the new system either! That same day, a local heating and cooling company stopped by the house to get ready to install a new system that same week.
“I don’t want to see anybody kicked out of their house if I can do something about it,” said Terry Shinn, from TS Heat and Air. The company installed a new high-efficiency system for the family — free of charge.
