Project Warmth Offers Free Energy Greenbox Kits in Cornwall Ontario – November 20, 2011

CFN –The Social Development Council (SDC) of Cornwall & area’s Project WARMTH is once again offering FREE Energy Greenbox kits to anyone in the SDG area who would like to be a little warmer this winter, and likely even save a little money.  The Energy Greenbox kits help stop cold drafts, stop heat loss and help you be a friend of the earth.This year’s kit includes “shrink-to-fit” interior window insulation to cover up to 10 windows, CFL light bulbs (which use about a quarter of the power of a regular light bulb), foam weather-stripping for door and window frames, and other useful energy conservation tips.

The program is made possible because of the ongoing support and partnership with Friends of the Earth (FoE) Canada; a charitable non-profit environmental organization located in Ottawa, who donated the contents included in this year’s kit.  “The purpose of the program is really one of the ways we help address the crisis of “energy poverty” that continues to persist in the community.  With our fourth winter of offering this program and usually approximately 500 kits delivered each year, many community members have come forward with identifying the improvements in costs and comfort these kits can really have in the home.” says Michelle Gratton, the founder of the SDC’s Project WARMTH.

There are only a limited number of kits available so residents are encouraged to hurry and get one while supplies last.  Interested participants can simply call the SDC to make arrangements to pick up their FREE kit or to find out about the nearest distribution site available throughout the SDG area by calling 613-930-0211.

The Social Development Council of Cornwall & area is a local non-profit organization committed to creating positive social change and building stronger communities.
