WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF OPERATION WEATHERIZATION?

Approximately 125 volunteers of all ages arrived the first Saturday morning in November ready to make a difference in their community. Donating around 1000 volunteer hours these volunteers assisted 105 families in Alexandria, Anderson, Elwood, and Pendleton. Operation Weatherization in seven years has helped almost 590 families improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

The goal of this all volunteer event is to help economically disadvantaged weatherize their homes and consequently reduce their energy costs. Homes are pre-selected from the Community Access Network- Charity Tracker database based on energy assistance need. The scope of work includes caulking, weather-stripping, covering windows with plastic, replacing furnace filters, installing energy saving light bulbs, and installing smoke and CO detectors. Each task contributes to the overall energy efficiency of these homes and can have a significant decrease on their monthly bills.

 OPERATION WEATHERIZATION VOLUNTEERS (THE BEST!)

 "We do a lot of service projects with our club. Some of them just aren't fun and some of them can be. This one was by far the funnest service project we have done." Matt Decker, Dativus Delta Kappa Alpha Mens Service and Social Club, Anderson University. It is the great attitudes like this that make helping people a more enjoyable experience!
