Did you know that having an uninsulated attached garage is like having an oven attached to your home on those hot summer days? And it’s like an icebox in the winter. The garage tends to hold the heat and cold for a long period of time, so your heat and air conditioner is working harder and costing you money. Insulating your garage door is one of the best ways to keep your garage temperature at a more moderate level making it easier on your heat and air conditioning system while saving you money.
Did you know that falls are the leading cause of death due to injury in those 65 and older? According the CDC, 95% of hip fractures are caused by falls; 40% of those hospitalized for hip fracture do not return to independent living and 20% will die within a year. These disturbing facts prove that falls and the injuries that result are one of the most substantial health threats for older adults. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take now to ensure your home will be a safe place for you and your loved ones in the years to come.
In Tarrant County, way too many children go to bed hungry each night. Luckily, there are many organizations working to fix this problem. The Community Food Bank is one example, serving an average of 400+ families daily to combat the struggle of hunger. TCU is working to support these efforts by hosting a community event benefiting the Food Bank.
“Walk a Mile for Hunger” allows volunteers to walk the beautiful TCU campus in support of those in need, and also in support of the TCU students hosting the event as a service learning project.
