Long Beach Seniors Receive Clean Water During E.coli Outbreak

Recently in the City of Long Beach, officials issued a restriction on using tap water for any purposes due to E.coli presence in the public water system. Our Senior Director of Senior Services, Carol O'Neill, reached out to Senator Todd Kaminsky with a request to supply bottled water for the seniors who attend the Long Beach Senior Center, and he did! Thank you Senator Kaminsky for helping to safeguard the health of Long Beach seniors!
