Local company Kaz donates product to Sudbury Senior Center “Safety Swap”
The Sudbury Senior Center has kicked off its annual “Safety Swap” which offers a free replacement portable heater or digital thermometer to its members to promote a more safe and healthy winter season.
Local seniors can bring in old, unreliable portable heaters to the center and trade a new Honeywell EnergySmart® Cool Touch Heater in return. This heater is very easy to use and with a cool touch grill it can be placed anywhere in the house. It is a fan based heater that oscillates and provides fast personal warmth. With simple digital controls, an adjustable thermostat, tip over and overheat protection – it’s the perfect way to keep warm and save money all winter long.
Also seniors can bring in any mercury based thermometer and in return will receive a free Vicks® ComfortFlex® Thermometer. This digital thermometer will take accurate readings in as little as 8 seconds and features a large, circular display for easy reading. The display also includes a Fever InSight™ feature, which changes color from green to yellow to red to help identify and track a fever. The thermometer is waterproof, has memory recall to help keep track as fevers progress and best of all contains no mercury.
Ed Gottman, the volunteer organizer of the program says “this is a great service to our neighbors. Kaz has been very generous over the years in supporting our heater swap program. This season, we are very excited to expand it to replacing old, mercury based thermometers - it really helps our seniors to be safe and healthy during the winter months”. Ed also has coordinated the appropriate disposal of both old heaters and mercury-based thermometers collected at the center.
