LETTER FROM WEATHERIZATION PARTICIPANT
" ... As I wrote the check for my first "real" gas bill of the season today, I thought about your wonderful organization and great crew that visited me about a year ago. Your group of young men and women were very impressive as they worked so quickly and cheerfully insulating waterpipes, electrical sockets, door weather stipping, etc. I truly enjoyed having all of you in my home. Even more impressive, though, was the effect your work did for my heating costs. Normally, my winter gas bills ran from near to over $200.00 After your visit, last year's highest gas bill was only $132.00, which certainly helped to stretch my very limited income. Please accept my gratitude - and keep up the great work!"
