Funds to Purchase 3000 "Vial of Life Plus" Packets for Cobb Seniors

Organization: Senior Citizen Council of Cobb County

Approximately 40% of Cobb County seniors do not have a thermometer in their home. This hinders seniors in monitoring their health and in providing vital information to their healthcare providers while telecommunicating. In response to the lack of a thermometer and other pandemic health challenges facing Cobb County seniors, the Senior Citizen Council of Cobb County (SCC) has distributed (funded by sponsors donations) “VIAL OF LIFE PLUS” packets which include a medical history form (English and Spanish) and a sticker which can be placed on a refrigerator to inform Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel about a patients health information. Additionally, a digital thermometer, a mask, and a small bottle of hand sanitizer are included in each packet. Our Goal is to raise $15,000 to supply an additional 3,000 “VIAL OF LIFE PLUS” packets to Cobb seniors. YOU CAN HELP! YOU CAN DONATE and SPONSOR packets which will be distributed to seniors in Cobb through Cobb Meals on Wheels and groups that work with seniors. $50 = 10 packets $100 = 20 packets $250 = 50 packets $500 = 100 packets $1,000 = 200 packets If you are a business or organization and wish to sponsor packets or donate thermometers or hand sanitizer with your logo, please send an e-mail to seniorcitizencouncilofcobb@gmail.com or access the SCC website at: seniorcitizencouncilofcobb.org. On behalf of senior residents of Cobb County thank you for your support.
