OMAHA (KPTM)- This summers heat has had everyone sweating, but try to tough it out with no air and no fans. That's been the reality for people living at Jackson Tower.
"Even on some days, stay outside because there's more breeze, more air than in here. This building being so big it's even worse," said resident, Robin Rivera.
No central air in the entire building stirred up some concern.
"I was glad that I had seen the news report on the towers because it wouldn't have even probably entered into my mind," said Diane Battiato of the Douglas County Register of Deeds.
But some residents now have a little relief from the summer scorchers. The Register of Deeds donated 30 box fans to help a little breeze flow through their apartments.
"It's a good thing because it's hot in this building and this will help out a lot," said resident Kevin Harrold, thankful for his new fan.
"I've been borrowing his when it gets real hot. So this way I can give his back and have my own," said resident Charlene Johnson.
But for some, the heat will still be hard to bare. There's over 200 people living at Jackson Tower with no air and no fans. Battiato is hoping that other organizations will also chip in.
"You don't realize those who are in a situation, especially with this extreme heat that has not been able to have the comfort of just at least a little cool air," said Battiato.
Still, the small start brought big gratitude.
"I give a lot of thanks to them. That's a good thing they did and glad they did it. Because it shows they care," said Harrold.
The Housing Authority has a list of people who don't have fans or air conditioners for those who would like to make donations.
