WACO, TX — Several assisted living facilities in Waco are asking the community for blankets for their residents due to a lack of power.

The elderly are especially impacted by the cold weather.

“If anyone has extra blankets, hand warmers, portable space heaters, flashlights or batteries and are able to safely deliver them to us, it would be greatly appreciated,” said Kristi Burger, head nurse at the Arbor House & Senior Care Facility located at 2418 Marketplace Drive.

Anyone with extra supplies is asked to contact their nearest facility.
