Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Volunteers: Why They Did It
More than 100 Neighborhood Energy Retrofit volunteers helped to make this neighbor-to-neighbor program successful. Below are reasons given by some of the volunteers for their extraordinary volunteer service.
- “I thought it was a good project, something to help me and my family. It was community centered and everybody could learn about energy conservation and how to make their home more energy-efficient.” Deborah Brame, Fisher Heights
- “I thought it was a good opportunity to improve my home and to show others how to make improvements to their home as well.” Yulanda Horton, Fisher Heights
- “I volunteered because it seemed like a useful program and not too time consuming. I also used to organize workshops in my job so it was something I knew how to do and it was an opportunity to meet people.” Liz Sappenfield, Watts Hospital Hillandale
- “I support Clean Energy Durham and I saw it as a way to give back to Clean Energy Durham and I like my neighborhood and it was a way to give back to my neighborhood as well.” Mary Wible-Brennan, Tuscaloosa Lakewood\Lakewood
- “It was interesting and I wanted to know more about the program. There weren’t many people volunteering for the program and it didn’t seem all that hard.” Erin Kennedy, Colonial Village
- “I am an environmental educator by profession. This program gave me a chance to promote environmentally responsible decisions in my own community. It involved direct action, really doing things.” Beth Cranford, Tuscaloosa Lakewood/Lakewood
