AC Units Fundraiser In McDonald County

ANDERSON, Mo. – A Missouri resident is fundraising to help citizens in McDonald County who cannot afford AC units.

Kyle Hackworth is the administrator for “Citizens of Anderson, MO” the town’s Facebook page.  Within the group, Hackworth has been able to start a Go Fund Me page to help families in McDonald County get or repair their A.C. unit.

The record high temperatures the four states have experienced recently has created a need for Hackworth’s service.  Hackworth said, ”

With the money being raised, Hackworth has bought, delivered, and installed A.C. units throughout Anderson.  However, recently there has been a drop in donations from the community, so his services have halted.  Currently, Hackworth said there are 10 families on his waitlist of receiving a unit.

“When I was struggling when I was younger, I didn’t have people to help me,” said Hackworth. “I had to do it myself and a lot of people don’t have those funds or those means to help themselves.”
