The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department and the DeKalb County H.E.L.P. Program delivered bottled water last week to elderly and others in need.
H.E.L.P. Program Coordinator Wanda Poss says "The H.E.L.P. program, which stands for Helping Elderly Live Productively, is funded through donations to help our elderly and people in need. We have decided to furnish bottled water which this program has paid for. Sheriff Patrick Ray and I delivered approximately 50 cases of water Tuesday."
Sheriff Ray expressed his support for the program. "I was very excited to be apart of this very needed program. People in our communities, especially our elderly, are having a tough time due to the extreme heat and lack of well water. I feel this program is a very beneficial tool in helping our citizens."
Poss says the next program will be the Christmas meals for the Elderly.
