It's the surprise of a lifetime for five families who found out Wednesday they're receiving the gift of comfort from Fayette Heating and Air. The families thought they were coming in as finalist for a contest to win an air conditioning system. Upon arrival, they found out each of them will actually receive a unit.
This is something Fayette Heating and Air regularly does during the 4th of July to help families. This is the first time they've specifically targeted families with military ties. Bret Melrose said "we wanted to do something special."
Each family has a special story of how they've persevered through some very tough times recently. Community members and neighbors wrote in to nominate them for this very special prize. Word is, they will all have their units installed by next week.
