Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing the St. Johns County Council on Aging (COA) in St. Augustine as a PSC Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program and energy and water conservation.
“We appreciate the St. Augustine COA’s distribution of our Lifeline materials,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “I also want to recognize Senior Center Coordinator Martha Skinner and her staff for helping us reach those who can most benefit from the information.”
Begun last year, each month the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers stretch their resources to meet their monthly bills.
“We are pleased to be named a PSC Helping Hand,” said Ms. Skinner. “The PSC has ensured that our seniors receive helpful information they can use every day to impact their budgets and make a difference in their overall quality of life. Lifeline helps seniors stay connected to friends, family, and community services, all very important to seniors, and we’d like to continue working with the PSC.”
