JABA, Chick-fil-A Host Event to Benefit Cool-Aid Program
Chick-fil-A is joining forces with the Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA) in Charlottesville Friday to host an event to help seniors stay cool in the summer heat.
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.
People can donate a dollar and kiss a cow or spin a wheel for free food. All proceeds help at-risk seniors beat the heat.
Denise Barisonzi with JABA said, "Since 1985, JABA has provided air conditioners and fans to seniors in our community who have health conditions, without cooling assistance. These people are at high risk for health conditions. Their lives could certainly be at risk."
The event kicked off at 6:00 a.m. and lasted until 10:00 p.m. at the Chick-fil-A on Woodbrook Drive in Charlottesville.
JABA says the event raised over $800 for the Cool-Aid program.
