Give Back to the Community
At each National Weatherization Training Conference, the Weatherization Network selects a local cause to support. In 2011 we have selected Hope for the Holidays , a wonderful effort to support families whose homes were affected by Hurricane Katrina. Please take a few minutes to read more about this cause and consider donating at the conference this December.
