Recently, Sacramento’s Habitat for Humanity has added energy efficiency remodels to their services. On Friday, January 26th Amanda Meleski attended a build event for Habitat for Humanity. This project was done in partnership with SMUD and GRID Alternatives to provide solar panel installations for low-income residents.
Amanda Meleski, Karen Novoa, Phit Thenethamnao, and David Gersten went as a team from NH Sacramento to the California State Exposition Center for Salvation Army. They spent Saturday morning on December 9th working along with other volunteers to fulfill and build Christmas dinner cases for 2500 families in the Sacramento area.
Brian Mulholland attended the Frodsham Community Christmas on 12/23. Over 650 entry tickets were distributed to guests from women's shelters, homeless shelters, Head Start programs, Safe Harbor shelters, and families just down on their luck identified throughout the county education dept. They brought the guests in busses. This tradition started 25 years ago. There was a Santa, pony rides, and even a Junior High School Band that played. It was a big event with lots of children.
On Saturday, December 10th, Bill Sullivan volunteered at a Trail Maintenance day with the Cleveland National Forest. He regularly volunteers over 100 hours per year doing trail reports, but this day was a work day rather than a hiking day. There were cub scouts and boy scouts that volunteered with the adult Forest Volunteers.
