Tallahassee, FL - It’s cold! And it doesn’t appear to be warming up any time soon. Many seniors in the community are facing these harsh temperatures with limited heat. Elder Care Services is averaging 6 to 8 requests a day by seniors needing blankets, heaters, or help with their utility bills.
ECS has relied on individual and community donations in the past to help assist with these request. We currently have no heaters in stock! Requests are expected to increase over the next two months with the record breaking temperatures.. Donations will allow us to continue to assist those in need.
