#GreenNFit Volunteers Make a Difference Text Size

Revitalize CDC’s second annual #GreenNFit Neighborhood Rebuild visited the city of Holyoke. Hundreds of volunteers and dozens of sponsors,  descended upon the Springdale Park neighborhood. The goal was to rebuild 10 homes and one city park all in one day.

The work on the homes will focus on making them safe, healthy, and energy-efficient. Scope of work may include repair or replacement of leaking roofs; installation of new energy-efficient windows and doors, insulation, and water-saving fixtures; installation of age-in-place modifications such as grab bars; electrical upgrades; repair of steps; exterior low-VOC painting; mulch; and planting of shrubs, trees, and flowers.

Mayor Morse, in partnership with the Community Development Office has funded Revitalize CDC with $100,000 of Community Development Block Grant funds.
