BAKERSFIELD, CA -- Supervisor Leticia Perez is seeking donations for Herbert Jackson, an 85-year-old man whose home was deemed unlivable because of water and power outages. Mr. Jackson purchased the home in 1950 for $6,000 right after he and his wife married. They raised their seven children in the house on Monticello Avenue in southeast Bakersfield. His wife has since passed away, and it is Mr. Jackson's wish is to remain in the house until his dying day.

Supervisor Perez has taken an active role providing direction and assistance to Mr. Jackson. With the help of AC Electric and numerous volunteers, work has begun on the dwelling to bring it to code. The Kern County Departments of Engineering, Surveying and Permit Services, Parks and Recreation, and Aging and Adult Services have been onsite to see that the house is brought to a livable standard in a timely manner.

All items in the sub-standard house have been discarded, and Mr. Jackson is in need of many necessary household items. Any persons wishing to donate items may bring them Tuesday to 505 Monticello Avenue in southeast Bakersfield between 10am - 4pm. Lunch will be provided to volunteers and donors from 12 - 1pm.
