Donate heaters to keep Gwinnett’s seniors warm this winter

 

Electric portable heaters (UL tested) are needed to help keep Gwinnett seniors warm this winter. This is the third year that Gwinnett County Senior Services (GCSS), in partnership with its local nonprofit, Friends of Gwinnett County Senior Services (Friends), and the Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services are working together to provide heating assistance to senior citizens through Project AWARE (Added Warmth Assistance for Residences of our Elderly).

Gwinnett County fire stations will be accepting brand new portable electric heaters now through February 28, 2012. The heaters will be collected from the stations and personally delivered to seniors in need. A smoke detector and information on fire safety will also be included along with the heaters.

For seniors to be considered eligible to receive a heater, they should be 60 years or older, live in Gwinnett County, and undergoing a financial hardship.
