TXU Energy, Meals on Wheels provide free air conditioning to 15 housebound clients

TXU Energy and Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County have joined forces to make sure homebound citizens can stay safe in their homes this summer.

A recent $5,000 donation to Meals on Wheels was used to purchase 15 air conditioning units, which will be distributed to area seniors and homebound clients.

TXU installed a window unit in 73-year-old Louann Hammond's home on Wednesday.

"I think it's wonderful to have it cool," Hammond said. "My children won't gripe about not having air conditioning."

"It's great of TXU and Meals on Wheels to give me this," she said. "I'm really surprised."
