ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- St. Louis just saw the hottest May on record, and June is off to a warm start as well.

That's one reason there's a big push to keep local seniors cool in the summer heat.

It's a program called Save Our Seniors or SOS.

Ameren donated 500 energy efficient air conditioners to cool down St. Louis. Workers were on hand Friday to start moving them out.

Ameren also donated $200,000 to help with utility bills.

News 4’s Kent Ehrhardt was on hand to help with the effort.

If you would like to help, contact cooldownstlouis.org.

The organization is accepting gently used air conditioners and cash donations.
