For the second straight year, Council on Aging of West Florida will partner with Home Instead Senior Care to accept monetary donations as part of the annual Senior Chill Out drive, which provides air conditioners and fans to elder adults. Every year, the agency relies heavily on the generous support of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties to continue to provide programs and services that empower seniors to remain independent and to age with dignity. The online fundraiser, called GIVE65, takes place July 10 to 12 at give65.org/chillout.
The annual Senior Chill Out, a one-day donation drive to collect new air conditioners, fans and/or funds to help seniors beat the heat, will be held by Council on Aging of West Florida, WEAR ABC 3, Cat Country 98.7, NewsRadio 1620, and Lowe’s Home Improvement on Friday, June 15 at area Lowe's stores (Fairfield Drive, Airport Blvd. and Nine Mile Road in Pensacola; Highway 98 in Gulf Breeze; and Highway 90 in Pace) from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The community is encouraged to help seniors who experience dangerous health complications as a result of the stifling summer heat by donating merchandise or making a monetary contribution.
