FPL and United HomeCare Help Seniors Prepare for Hurricane Season

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and United HomeCare are partnering to distribute hurricane preparedness meal kits to more than 475 seniors across Miami-Dade County on Thursday, June 20. With the start of what is anticipated to be an above average storm season, this effort will help provide vital supplies to seniors in the communities FPL serves.
