* Community Green will conduct energy audits, including for low-income residents of Champaign County. Our trained experts will check and measure energy use, pointing out ways to improve comfort while reducing utility costs.
* We will be able to help “Green Up” new construction with practical energy-saving information and connections to experienced contractors.
* Housing advocacy services to assist community members in obtaining and/or maintaining stable, energy-efficient housing.
* Community Green will teach and communicate… with outreach programs to community groups.And we are not just talk! Community Green is all about putting energy-saving ideas into action. So we won’t just give advice, we will follow up with homeowners and builders and make sure the job gets done. “Conservation” does NOT mean “sacrifice.” Making smarter choices in how we use energy can make our homes more comfortable and our lives easier. At the same time, getting energy smarter means saving money, breathing cleaner air, fighting global warming, and helping our country become less dependent on foreign energy suppliers. There was an article in today's paper. You can access it at The News-Gazette online, in the business section.
Today was our "Grand Opening" for the Resale Shop. The revenue from the shop will help to support services. Most of the items in the shop were donated by our family and friends. Their generosity and support helped us to get this venture off the ground. We met a lot of new people, picked up some donations and even gained some consumers needing our services. All in all, a most awesome day! At this time, we are an all volunteer organization. We do accept donations and even offer pick-up service for donations on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Our hours are Thursday 1 pm - 6 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am - 6 pm and Sunday Noon - 5 pm. So, if you need a place to send your leftover yard sale items, think Community Green! Also, should you be looking for a volunteer opportunity...again, think Community Green! The Resale Shop is located at 2200A E. University Ave. (next to Casey's). Come visit us soon and Go Green!
