What happened to February??

It’s nearly over already! This month has been so busy! In the first half of the month we had an excellent service day at the CT Food Bank. We labeled and sorted a whole bunch of frozen meat products and sorted candy and bathroom products. It was pretty great.

In Weston we had a workshop - despite the rain and low attendance it was fairly successful. I had a lot of help from Stacy and Kayla with our children’s craft component. Everybody at the event signed up for a Home Energy Solutions visit and many signed up for a lighting visit too! And we had a volunteer to help out! I love volunteers. Which is probably why I’m the volunteer coordinator.

In Wethersfield we’ve been working to get our legs under us to get our business strategy moving. We’re trying to engage local businesses to partner with to promote our program. This could be a really great way to reach sections of the community that we might not otherwise encounter. And it could be especially attractive if each business offers some kind of incentive at their storefront - nothing huge, but a little something something to sweeten the deal.
