With the end of summer still a couple months away, the First State Community Action Agency is giving some households a way to beat the heat.

Sussex and Kent county residents can qualify for a free window air conditioner through the group’s Summer Cooling Assistance Program. Applications will be taken from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at 308 N. Railroad Ave. in Georgetown and on July 21 at 655 S. Bay Road, Suite 4J, in Dover. Applications also will be taken by appointment.
