Webster City Warm Hearts, Warm Homes, a community partnership project designed to bring volunteers together to perform free energy saving measures on homes of elderly, disabled and low-income neighbors across the Webster City community, will be held Nov. 3. Interested home owners who would like to take advantage of this program should contact Justin Jones at (641) 580-0330 or go to the Black Hill Energy office at 644 First Street. The deadline to apply is today. This deadlines is important so the proper amount of materials can be ordered, officials said.
The measures are simple, yet effective to save on energy costs and may include caulking, weather-stripping, window plastic, door sweeps and other insulating techniques, according to organizers.
Volunteers are also still needed. Organizations, businesses or church groups who would like to volunteer to be part of the event with 6-member team, are asked to contact Jones by Wednesday. He said tasks are easy to do and training will be provided. No experience or special skills are necessary, organizers said, other than a willingness to help others. Volunteers are also needed to help at Fuller Hall during the morning of Nov. 3.
For questions or additional information, contact Jones at 641-580-0330.
