“Our community has been dealing with rising temperatures most of the summer. Our seniors matter and we are prepared to help where we can. We aren’t out of the woods yet as it relates to the heat, so we are ready to jump in and serve. We are ready to serve by making the necessary preparations to assist our neighbors in need.,” said Lieutenant Thomas Johnson, Lafayette Corps Officer.

Fans were donated by members of the Acadiana community for seniors ages 55 and up.
