RG&E Partners With Foodlink to Help Keep Winter Winds at Bay
– RG&E will hand out reusable grocery bags filled with easy-to-install weatherization supplies at seven upcoming food distributions hosted by Foodlink. The supplies will include an insulation kit for three windows, a roll of weather stripping for sealing windows and doors, and 10 switch/outlet sealers.
RG&E representatives will also be on hand to distribute information and answer questions about the federal Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), RG&E’s new Energy Assistance Program for low income customers and how to use energy wisely.
“Our goal in partnering with Foodlink is to add even more value to the vital services the organization provides to the less fortunate in our communities,” said Terri Van Brooker, director - customer service at NYSEG and RG&E.
