Volunteer Project for WWII Veteran
On Memorial Day, America remembers those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. The many veterans in our communities deserve recognition as they too sacrificed so much for our freedom.
The Building Performance Contractors Association of NYS (BPCA/NYS) is proud to honor all of our veterans on this Memorial Day.
The local members of BPCA/NYS Westchester Chapter are expressing their gratitude through a local volunteer effort. For two weeks prior, leading up to the Memorial Day weekend, members of BPCA/NYS are working together to reduce the energy costs for the home of a local hero.
Please join us as BPCA/NYS and see how we apply our resources to retrofitting a veterans’ home at 11 Somerstown Rd in Ossining between the hours of 10 am and 12 noon on Thursday the 23rd of May 2013.
This “energy makeover” will drastically reduce the monthly energy bills and increase the comfort, safety and value of the home for the veteran and his family.
All of our veterans’ deserve our gratitude and respect for the sacrifices they made. Our Contractor members are honored to make a small sacrifice to help one local veteran permanently save money on their energy bills.
We hope the media publicity from this event will help us find two more local veterans who need a free “energy makeover” this fall. Westchester Veterans can apply for a free “energy makeover” by visiting www.home-performance.org or email Donnovan Beckford at [email protected] – see attached flyer to post on media website
*** Note to media and other visitors – the house is on a main road (Rt.133) with limited or no on-site parking – we suggest parking on nearby side streets Cooper St. or Ganung Drive and walk down. Thank You for your cooperation. ***
