The Florida Public Service Commission is recognizing Lynn Haven Senior Center in Bay County as September’s Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting seniors.
“The Lynn Haven Senior Center offers educational programs that assist older persons in need,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “We appreciate the Senior Center inviting us to visit with their clientele during regular community outreach events so that we can share utility bill saving strategies.”
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 provide programs for elderly, disabled and disadvantaged persons, who need assistance to maintain their independence and quality of life,” said Diane Rodriguez, Lynn Haven Senior Center Coordinator. “Our PSC partnership fits nicely with our goals. We appreciate the information to help our seniors save money on their bills and be aware of consumer scams.”
