Kinneret Apartments benefits from local donation


Southeast Steel employees install the new freezer at Kinneret.

When Kinneret Apartments recently experienced a failing freezer, a quick call to Southeast Steel, a locally owned and operated seller of appliances, resulted in a donation of a new, front opening freezer.

The owners of Southeast Steel, Stu and Joanie Kimball, responded within 30 minutes confirming the delivery and installation of the new freezer. "We are so grateful for their amazing community support. The quick response allowed us to seamlessly continue serving our residents," said Sharon Weil, director of Programming and Development for Kinneret Council on Aging.

The freezer is used to store food for Kinneret's popular, bi-monthly pantry program that serves over 120 residents. Groceries including rice or pasta, a protein, canned goods as well as frozen meats and fresh produce are distributed at no cost to residents, many of whom enjoy cooking their own meals. The pantry program is just one of the numerous programs that KCOA supports for the residents at Kinneret.

Kinneret Apartments, located in downtown Orlando, provides subsidized housing to 280 independent seniors. For information on the facility or to find out how you can donate to KCOA, please go to http://www.kinneretapartments.com or contact Sharon Weil at 407.425.4537.
