The Area Agency on Aging of Pasco Pinellas, in partnership with a network of nonprofit organizations, is distributing emergency hygiene kits to support seniors affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. These kits provide basic necessities to seniors who have been unable to find these items at their grocery stores due to increased demand.
Distribution of the kits is supported by the United Way of Pasco and American House Foundation for seniors in Pasco and Pinellas counties, respectively. Funding for these efforts will provide more than 2,800 seniors with a kit and will be distributed alongside home-delivered and drive-through meal sites throughout the two counties.
The Area Agency on Aging of Pasco Pinellas serves more than 50,000 older adults through a variety of programs, including home meal delivery, transportation, adult day care, health and well-being programming, and information and referral services provided through the Elder Helpline.
