LEAF RIVER, Ill (WIFR) -- One Leaf River family is cooling down in a big way after receiving an air conditioner for their home from two local organizations.

Brittney Kraft and her husband bought a home in April. Shortly after, their basement flooded and then they had problems with their cars. The couple didn't think they'd be able to afford to install air conditioning into their home until next year. But thanks to the help of Just Breathe 815 and Allen Heating & Cooling, this summer just a got little more bearable as the group’s installed the air conditioning unit Thursday.

“It's 90 degrees getting up to what feels like 100 with all the humidity we've had, so when Kevin came with Tom and said ‘we're going to help you out with an AC unit’ it was like, wow it was like a break in the clouds it was a nice little hey we're going to be okay,” said Brittany Kraft.
