TALLAHASSEE—The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing the Calhoun County Senior Citizens Association, Inc. (SCA) as August’s Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone and broadband discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting seniors.
“We appreciate the Senior Citizens Association’s willingness to share the PSC’s beneficial information with Calhoun County residents,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “Through our ongoing outreach partnership, we are able to distribute our Lifeline, scam protection, and conservation materials to those individuals who will find the information most useful.”
Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline Program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers better manage their resources to meet their monthly bills and avoid falling for utility-related scams.
“We are pleased to be named a PSC Helping Hand partner,” said Marilyn Russell, SCA Director. “The Association’s aim is to help residents achieve and maintain an independent, healthy lifestyle.
