Sponsored by the Tallmadge Kiwanis Club, Tallmadge Middle School Builder's Club kids are looking to help senior citizens through their Senior Citizens Safety Program. The program's goal is to provide help and support to the older population in Tallmadge, who may be empty-nesters, or those who are living alone, to be safe in their homes. Seniors who choose to participate can make an appointment to schedule a free, in-home safety inspection. The safety team will check for easy-to-read house numbers, a clear path to the main entrance door, a working door bell and front porch light, an emergency lock-box, a list of easy-to-find emergency phone numbers and working phone, a working smoke/gas detector, and a first-aid kit. Where items are missing or not working, these safety team students may help purchase or replace or make plans to help fix them. For more information, contact Mark Fairhurst at 330-612-2142 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
