News on Six partnered with Airco Service to provide new heaters for two deserving families.

On Friday, workers installed a new furnace at Shell's home. The single mother is grateful for the gift and Airco says they're proud they can help make such a big difference in someone's life.

"Whenever we get a chance to give back, you know, we've been in business for 50 years and Tulsa does a lot for us, and we just like to give back any way we can," Austin Boyce, with Airco Service, said.

A longtime friend nominated Shell.

Janet Abraham was the other winner. Her new furnace will be installed next week.
