With so many people sweating it out with no air conditioning, volunteers at a Scottsville cooling shelter say they need your help giving out bottled water.
Victory Hall in downtown Scottsville is set up as a cooling center. A small staff of volunteers has been handing out cases of bottled water to families who need it.
They've used up nearly a full tractor-trailer's worth of bottled water Friday. They say they need more people to help in transporting the water.
Victory Hall theater manager Elizabeth Schoenborn said, "We've had elderly, we've had young, we've had just a little bit of everybody and we actually had some water out in the middle of the street last night to be able to help with the demand."
That cooling center opens back up Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
Also Saturday night at Victory Hall, a previously scheduled live concert will now act as a fundraiser. Christian Critzer will perform starting at 7:00 p.m. Donations will be accepted at the concert to help out families in the area that don't have electricity.
