These extreme temperatures we have been experiencing can be especially difficult on the elderly, but one program here in the Valley is providing some relief.
The Valley Program for Aging Services is teaming up again with Dominion Virginia Power for "fan care".
The program is in it's sixteenth year , statewide, and provides fans and some cooling assistance funds for those who qualify.
"I live in a second floor apartment and it gets very hot, and i realize as i get older that older people mind the heat much more than the humidity," says Mary Miller a fan recipient
A new shipment of fans has just arrived at the Price-Rotary Senior Center.
You should contact the Valley Program for Aging Services for more information.
