ST. CLOUD - The heat is brutal, but most of us are fortunate to have the means to cool our homes. Still, there are exceptions.

St. Cloud Catholic Charities says they've seen a spike in requests for air conditioners and fans - but right now, they have none. They're asking you to consider your neighbors by donating your extra, gently-used fans or air conditioners.

They also want you to know the area around Catholic Charities is under construction at the moment, and don't want you to be discouraged by the traffic when coming to make a donation.

For more information on drop-off days and hours, visit the Catholic Charities website.
