LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - One La Crosse veteran won't have to sweat the hot weather we've seen lately thanks to a generous donation by an area business.
Bagniefski Heating and Air Conditioning of La Crosse installed a donated a/c unit in Gerald Sebranek's La Crosse home Wednesday morning free of charge.
The company says they wanted to do something to help an area veteran and were told by the county that Sebranek's more than 20-year-old system needed to be replaced.
Sebranek says the new unit will improve his quality of life.
"I just can't thank them enough, Bagniefski. They're very, very nice gentlemen and they're doing an excellent job, and the air conditioning's in. It's working and I'm perfectly comfortable. It's going to be another hot one today and I'm going to sit in the comfort of my home," said Sebranek.
While this is the first time Bagniefski was able to provide a free service for a local veteran, the company hopes to make this a regular event.
"Anytime we can help a veteran, it's just a feel-good situation. To be able to help Jerry, it just was a good feeling," said Bagniefski owner Tim Cavadini.
The a/c unit was donated by a Wisconsin supplier while Bagniefski Heating and Air Conditioning donated the manpower for the free installation.
