It’s all part of the annual Beat the Heat program put on by the utility and the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

This year, 350 fans and 35 window-unit air conditioners will be given to qualified low-income, disabled and elderly Mississippians in Entergy Mississippi’s 45-county service area. Local community action agencies will qualify residents and help with distribution.
