PG&E PURCHASES, DISTRIBUTES MORE THAN 100 PORTABLE FANS TO HOMEBOUND SENIORS IN BAKERSFIELD
About 120 Bakersfield seniors were surprised this week when PG&E employees and summer interns helped deliver 20-inch fans to their homes. The portable, plug-in fans were given to homebound seniors as part of the annual Christmas in July program that local PG&E employees helped launch five years ago. Each July, a designated group of seniors receives gifts from PG&E and community donors — this year, it was seniors enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program. PG&E’s $1,600 donation purchased the fans.
