The McKinley Foundation, McKinley Church, and Presby Hall students have combined forces to put faith into the action of caring for our planet and one another. We have a newly formed Faith-in-Place Green Team (https://www.faithinplace.org/get-involved) which plans for events and actions related to clean energy and environmental care.
Our first action was to apply for and receive a Smart Energy Education grant for $2500. Funds will be going toward hosting community education events, a garden to provide fresh produce for the hungry, and reducing plastic waste by encouraging refillable water bottle use. If you are interested in joining McKinley’s Green Team initiative, contact Lara Hebert (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
