Agency reports requests for help increase by 16%

FREMONT Demand for air conditioners and help with paying electric bills is 16 percent higher in the first month of the program than the same period last year, WSOS Community Action Commission Inc. said.

The program has distributed 139 air conditioners and helped 136 households pay their electric bills during June. The program runs through Aug. 31.

In June, 2005, 102 air conditioners were distributed and 119 households got bill help.

The program is available to low-income residents who have a medical condition that requires them to be in an air-conditioned environment.
