(The great report below comes from Lynne Fishel, Citizen Voice’s Southern California Field Representative.)
Distribution of Citizen Voice SAFELY OUT™ Kits in Orange County continues to advance. Thanks to the Orange County Community Foundation and the California Emergency Management Agency, 1,500 Kits were delivered in June to Orange County’s Office on Aging. Distribution through regional senior centers and the Meals-On-Wheels program is underway and homebound senior citizens across the county are being provided with CV SAFELY OUT™ Kits. We have already been asked by those enthusiastically involved in the distribution that they would love to have more Kits to reach additional seniors. As further funding becomes available, additional kits will be provided to some of Orange County’s most vulnerable residents to help ensure they are safe after a devastating manmade or natural disaster.
