MAKE MEALS for the CHERNICKS

We Need YOU to Help Build Insulating Window Inserts
The Tin Mountain Energy Team is working with the non-profit Window Dressers to build simple, tight, pine frame insulation frames for leaky windows to cut down heat loss in winter. We are looking for volunteers to help construct frames as well as help wrap and finish them at our community build at Settlers Green on October 22-25. We will be constructing 209 inserts for 22 homes throughout the Valley. Volunteers will be trained on site and do not need a specific skill set, although a familiarity with a power drill is helpful for frame construction on 10/22. This is our second year of hosting a build in the valley, and we are impressed with the enthusiasm of the community to support this effort. 

Please explore the link below and sign up for one or more shifts to join our community event and help keep the MWV a little warmer this year. We encourage folks to sign up for the frame assembly and insert wrapping station, but if you are interested in providing snacks, we appreciate any and all participation. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
