New Roads man help less fortunate "beat the heat"
NEW ROADS - Several people in Pointe Coupee Parish have cool air for the first time in years.
Nearly 100 fans and air conditioning units were given out for free to the less fortunate throughout the parish today.
It's all part of an event called Beat the Heat. Organizer James "Big Brown" Joseph collected the fans and AC units through donations earlier this month.
Suzie Worley received a couple of fans, " You just don't know how it gets in that kitchen. It's gonna be better. Much better now."
The annual event started in 2009.
