ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Heat is something a lot of us take for granted this holiday season, but one local man's heat wish was granted thanks to the generosity of a local company.
Tony Reitz has been living without any heat in his home in the 1300 block of Linda Avenue.
Allen Heating and Cooling came to Tony's aid by providing and installing a furnace in his home free of charge.
"I'm thankful, I'm glad somebody came out to help me," says Reitz. "I'm glad they did the installation, too and everything else, so I mean I'm glad I got a heater because otherwise I'd still be without one."
