AURORA, Ill. – Continuing to provide resources for vulnerable residents during these difficult times, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, passed out over 500 masks to seniors throughout the community, including at the Alden Horizon Senior Living facility in Aurora.
“It is vital that during these trying times, we step up to do everything we can to help protect our more vulnerable residents in our community,” said Kifowit. “Providing masks for our seniors, who might not otherwise be able to get the proper materials is the least I could do. I would like to thank everyone who helped us from the bottom of my heart, especially JOANN Fabrics for donating the masks.”
On Friday, Kifowit visited multiple senior care facilities to deliver masks she acquired from JOANN Fabrics. The visit came in the wake of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s extension of the state’s stay-at-home order, which now also requires Illinois residents to wear a face-covering or a mask when in a public place where they cannot maintain a six-foot social distance.
“We are most grateful for State Representative Kifowit and JOANN Fabrics for their generosity and donation of the masks to the residents of Alden Horizon, The Villas, and The Lakes located on the Waterfod Campus,” states Julie Carden, Manager of Alden Horizon. “As our residents have to travel off campus and in the community, these masks will help them protect the public, and follow IDPH and CDC guidelines and be responsible in preventing community spread of the Virus.”
