Blanket distribution slated Oct. 31 at senior center

In anticipation of the forthcoming cold season, Rep. Halsey Beshears and Farm Share, a non-profit organization, dedicated to recovering, sorting, packing and distributing essential items to individuals in need, will host a blanket distribution at the Taylor Senior Citizen Center Thursday, Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“We were contacted by Farm Share and told they had a large quantity of blankets that they would like to distribute in some rural counties in District 7,” Beshears said. “We knew immediately that we wanted to be a part of this distribution effort.”

“Farm Share is delighted to be working with Rep. Beshears to help provide warm blankets for seniors and families in need across North Florida,” Farm Share Founder and President Patricia Robbins said.

“We want to encourage everyone to come by the Senior Center and pick up a blanket. We would especially like to see that the elderly, homeless, and less fortunate are able to receive an article that would provide warmth and individual protection,” continued Rep. Beshears.

The senior center is located at 800 West Ash St. in Perry.
