o find solutions to our City’s energy usage and climate change problem. Conservation efforts in this thriving neighborhood could reduce stress on our power grid more than any other neighborhood in New York State. The LES is a heavy energy user, so our efforts there get you more ‘bang for your buck’ every time a roof is coated white.
This week, White Roof Project officially turns 1 year old. Give us a present!
What did we do in year one? See it all in the presentation above! Here are some highlights:
- We funded and spearheaded the first white roof model block in all of New York City on the Lower East Side.
- We worked with over 20 community partners and became an official nonprofit!
- Our volunteers helped coat enough roofs to stretch from Coney Island to Yankee Stadium.
So, stay on board and be our friend in year 2. Make a difference with a contribution or consider joining our junior board or volunteer team.
We’ll spend this winter in planning mode; and we need your help. We are seeking a Secretary, a Communications Deputy Director, a Finance Director and many other talented individuals to be part of our cadre of white roof activists. Could you be one of them? Email us HERE.
Our first birthday is just the beginning. Thank you for a great year.
