JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

Agape Christian Academy is struggling to keep kids cool in the hot temperatures after two air conditioning units were stolen less than a week apart. 

The preschool and after-school program was forced to borrow an air conditioning unit and place large fans inside classrooms to keep over 60 children comfortable. 

Cantrell Keyes, director of Agape, estimates that thieves have done over $20,000 in damage. 

Surveillance video shows a person dragging away a condensing unit Thursday night. If you recognize the individual, please call Jackson police. 

Agape Christian Academy will have a fundraiser on the property Friday 11:30 a.m. -3:30 p.m., selling food. They have set up a GoFundMe page to help offset the cost of repairs.

We will have more from the director in tonight's newscasts.
