We are excited to announce that we have received a Celebration of Service Grant from the Home Depot Foundation to help pay for weatherization supplies in our fall Community Weatherization efforts. The Home Depot Foundation is honored to support the housing needs of our U.S. military veterans and has pledged $30 million over three years to ensure every veteran has a safe place to call home. To fulfill that goal they will support the volunteer efforts of community groups that specifically identify service projects that benefit veterans. This project is also supported by the Alliant Energy Hometown Rewards Grant that Fairfield has received-a 2-year project to help educate our community on how to reduce energy usage and reduce our carbon footprint.
We will mobilize community volunteers to weatherize the homes of 20 veterans here in Fairfield. We need your help to find those homes. Please contact us to sign up if you are a veteran and would like to receive this service. Please forward this email to those who might be interested. We are also seeking volunteers for this project and will continue to update you as plans unfold. Please be in touch!
