Local Charity Adopts Efficiency

Sharing and Caring Hands, a Minneapolis charity, is an energy efficient facility due to a lighting retrofit project, which was installed by Cedar Creek Energy.

Online PR News – 20-April-2012 – Coon Rapids/MN – Sharing and Caring Hands is a group of volunteers who help provide assistance to those in need. It is a donation-based organization that relies solely on the time, money, goods and services donated by the community and its volunteers. In order to give more back to less fortunate citizens, they have asked Cedar Creek Energy to retrofit their building, lowering their energy costs and becoming more energy efficient.

Sharing and Caring Hands provides needs to the underprivileged that are not being met by the welfare system. They provide necessities like shelter, food, transportation, rent assistance, school expenses, medical assistance and many other types of aid. Each month, over 20,000 people come to their facility for assistance where Sharing and Caring Hands (http://sharingandcaringhands.org) spends more than $400,000 to help these less-fortunate citizens.

The lighting retrofit project provided by Cedar Creek Energy (http://cedarcreekenergy.com) will save approximately $8,000 annually off their expenses. The money saved from this energy efficient project will be given back to the poor in order to provide further assistance each month. “Cedar Creek Energy was very friendly, fast, and efficient! I was very happy at how self-efficient and thorough they were” said Jeremy Barthel – the Maintenance Manager at Sharing and Caring Hands.

The adoption of this energy efficient technology brings Sharing and Caring Hands another step further in providing for the poor citizens of the local communities. To learn how you can help this charity and give back to your community visit: http://www.sharingandcaringhands.org/
