Using federal stimulus money, they are using it to winterize houses, cut down on carbon emissions, and helping people find jobs while doing it. While I really like the idea, the problem is that it is linked to ongoing federal funding, the kind that gets cut when you run massive deficits. Of course at the same time, without federal intervention and funding, would these upgrades ever get done?
A cool video on Comet Skateboards and how they moved from Oakland, California to Ithaca, New York and made the transition into their new city and neighborhood by making a commitment to being good neighbors and giving back to the community. Itâ€™s a lesson many organizations and some churches could learn.
