Kudos to the more than 170 volunteers who shared their time and talents Saturday morning to help weatherize homes all over Webster City.
The volunteers took part in the Warm Hearts Warm Homes project, a community partnership project designed to bring volunteers together to perform free energy saving measures on the homes of elderly, disabled and low-income neighbors across the Webster City community. The volunteer teams from businesses, community groups, churches and others entities installed weather stripping, caulked windows, blanketed water heaters and put up plastic on windows. The goal was to help keep the homes warmer this winter and to also save the homeowner on energy costs during the cold winter months. The volunteers weatherized 50 homes Saturday morning.
The Daily Freeman-Journal salutes all of the workers involved in the project and the planning committee comprised representatives of Black Hills Energy, the city of Webster City, All Cultures Equal, area churches, the Hamilton County Board of Supervisors, Webster City Custom Meats, and the Webster City Chamber of Commerce.
Hopefully, through volunteer efforts of local citizens and generous donations, this program can go on for years to come.
