The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is presenting its monthly Helping Hand recognition to Jacksonville’s Mary Singleton Senior Center whose programs assist seniors year-round.
“Supporting positive senior lifestyles can improve the overall quality of life for these Floridians,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “The PSC appreciates the Mary Singleton Senior Center for their education and activity programs and for inviting the PSC to help keep their clients informed.”
Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline telephone discount program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares information to help consumers stretch their resources to meet their monthly bills.
“During Older Americans Month in May, we were delighted to have the PSC help our Center’s participants and support our ongoing educational programs,” said Deborah Bell, Site Coordinator, Mary Singleton Senior Center. “Our seniors benefit from the information on Lifeline, scams awareness, energy and water conservation, and utility bill payment assistance. We look forward to more PSC educational visits.”
