PECO Offers Relief on the first Day of Summer
Senior Citizens gathered at PCDC on the first day of summer to get a free box fan. PECO’s Senior Fan Giveaway program could not have come at a better time. It was warm and humid on June 21st, when On Lok Senior House and Social Service Center and PCDC joined PECO Corporate Relations Director Romona Riscoe Benson and the PECO volunteers to distribute one hundred box fans. It was a fun festive event with tents for shade, chairs for comfort, Chinese pop music in the background, and games of mahjong and xiangqi. In addition to the donated fans, PECO offered refreshments, and PECO’s Smart Ideas team gave away energy efficient light bulbs. John Chin and Ms. Riscoe Benson were the featured speakers at this event with intern Tatman Chio providing Mandarin and Cantonese translation.
PCDC thanks PECO for its generosity and its focus on seniors. The fans will be especially appreciated during the hot months of summer!
