Volunteers Needed, United Way’s Project Warm Heart

Posted by on November 25, 2005

Volunteers Needed!

United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania is recruiting volunteers to weatherize homes throughout our region. No experience required!

Winter is on the way and heating costs will be an issue for many individuals and families, especially those on a fixed income. However, by weatherizing a home and reducing the use of heat, you can save 5% – 20% in energy costs!

United Way in Action

United Way is mobilizing volunteers to provide weatherization assistance and conservation education to vulnerable households (i.e. the elderly, disabled, homebound, families with infants and children) across the region.

United Way will also educate families (via service providers) about conservation techniques and crisis assistance funds, and provide them with the tools and training to conduct their own weatherization efforts.

Join United Way and Volunteer Today!
