Volunteer Training and Weatherization Workshops - 06/07/12

The following post is a project update from Nick Gauna, Campaign Organizer for the West Coast and Pacific Northwest , and the Rebuilding Together Sacramento Grassroots campaign that raised $1,825 for installations of energy-efficient infrastructure home upgrades.

Sacramento – Having worked with Program and Development Director Cindy and Rebuilding Together Sacramento before, it was an easy choice to feature them as one of our great Earth Day campaigns for the Grassroots re-launch.

Enough funds were raised to install energy-efficient infrastructure upgrades to 21 Sacramento-area low-income homes. In just more than a month Cindy reported they have identified the first 10 homes that will receive the upgrades. However, because Rebuilding Together heavily relies on the dedication of volunteers, training programs are the first step for installing these upgrades. Cindy passed along several photos of the training session, as well as photos of volunteers making initial measures for the weatherization items that will be installed.
