Support for home weatherization for local low-income residents is the largest single component of the Meeting’s approved donations budget. Through the Peace and Social Concerns Committee, the Meeting will award “seed-capital” grants toward energy-saving home projects.
For effective use of those grants, the Committee will partner with area non-profits that deploy skilled contractors and volunteers. It is hoped that Meeting members and attenders will join the ranks of those working on weatherization. Two non-profits, Community Action Opportunities and Energy Savers Network, are calling for volunteers for a project this Wednesday, November 16, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.
