The 26 newest members of the NHCC concluded their first week in early January with an AmeriCorps swearing-in ceremony followed by an introduction to volunteer service at the Medvil Housing Co-op in Goffstown. In collaboration with StayWarmNH, Governor John Lynch's initiative to winterize homes in low-income areas, the volunteers spent the afternoon installing window wraps, weather stripping, low-flow showerheads, and energy-saving light bulbs.
Laura Richardson, Project Director of StayWarmNH, said of the occasion, "The Medvil experience really resonated with the homeowners. It has been a pleasure working with [SCA NHCC] on StayWarm."
