[ARCHIVED] Coalition Helps Seniors Stay Safe

The City of Midland is teaming up with local non-profits and businesses to keep seniors safe this holiday season.

On November 17th, volunteers will make repairs to three homes identified by the Midland Fire Department Community Risk Reduction team. Earlier this year, Fire Department personnel identified multiple homes which presented a fire and health safety hazard to the occupants. In addition to these hazards, fire-fighters noticed homes where more extensive repairs were needed.

Armed with this information, Assistant Chief Michael Cota helped identify community needs for a team of non-profits and businesses ready to tackle the repairs – all free of charge to the homeowners, many of whom are elderly. Volunteers from Senior Link, Angels Home Health Care, Hands of Compassion, Midland Memorial Hospital, Radical Generosity (Golf Course Road Church of Christ) and others have contributed their time; All-American Chevrolet, Jimmy Johns,  and Firehouse Subs have donated vehicles and food for the volunteers. “It truly is a community coming together to help,” said Cota.  

“Oftentimes, a homeowner has a fall or illness and just isn’t able to make repairs to their home,” he added. “We are glad to make a difference in their lives to keep them moving forward.”
