JABA, Chick-fil-A Join Forces to Hold Event for Cool-Aid Program
Chick-fil-A is joining forces with the Jefferson Area Board for
Aging (JABA) in Charlottesville to help seniors stay cool during the summer
Cool-Aid is a program run by JABA that provides cooling assistance
to people who are over the age of 60 and have medical conditions that put them
at risk to heat exposure.
JABA is holding a fundraising event for the Cool-Aid program Friday.
It kicks off at 6:00 a.m. and will go on all day at the Chick-fil-A on
Woodbrook Drive in Charlottesville.
Susan Seidler of JABA said, "It's a lot of fun. It's for
everybody in the family and you make a small donation when you play one of the
games and those donations helps us raise money for the Cool-Aid program."
Games and activities at Friday's event will bring in donations to
pay for fans and air conditioners to help at risk seniors beat the heat.
