You know Winter is around the corner…. our Fuel Assistance Program continues. In 2015, FOBS supplied 20 seniors with 150 gallons of oil at no charge through generous donations from the Bolton community. Help us continue to provide this much needed assistance — contribute today or contact Terry at 978-634-1025 for more information.

heat tips for the elderly
People aged 65 years and older are more prone to heat stress than younger people. If you have elderly relatives or neighbors, or are older yourself, the following can help avoid heat-related stress:
- Visit older adults at risk at least twice a day and watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
- Recommend that they visit (or take them if they have transportation problems) to air-conditioned locations – such as the Senior Center or Bolton Public Library.
- Make sure older adults have access to an electric fan whenever possible.
In order to make sure Bolton seniors are safe, FOBS is looking for donations of fans and air conditioners in good working order, which can be given to Bolton seniors in need. Please contact Mary Boyd at 978-779-2740 or Terry Abdalian at 978-634-1025 if you have a donation or would like a fan to keep you cool this summer.
