On October 29th, Holly Hutchinson, our Finger Lakes Climate Fund Coordinator, and Milena Bimpong, our Tenant Engagement Coordinator, did tabling at the Southside Community Center block party. Members of the community enjoyed food, music, and a raffle drawing while learning about Ithaca’s organizations and initiatives focused on sustainability, which included Cornell Cooperative Extension, HeatSmart Tompkins, and others.
Holly and Milena spoke to attendees about Sustainable Finger Lakes, the Finger Lakes Climate Fund, and our upcoming low and moderate-income rental project. Several tenants and landlords who stopped by our table were interested in learning more about the rental project, which will focus on energy efficiency upgrades for LMI rental units in Ithaca.
We would like to give a special thanks to Anne Rhodes and the Southside Community Center for organizing this event and giving us this amazing opportunity to engage with the community! If you are a tenant who may be interested in our upcoming LMI rental project, email Milena Bimpong: mi****@su********************.org.
