EDMONTON, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - The Mustard Seed Edmonton will be able to
complete improvements to its heating system this winter thanks to another
$10,000 donation from Alberta Energy Savings L.P., an Energy Savings Group
A $10,000 donation from Alberta Energy Savings L.P. last year helped The
Mustard Seed Edmonton buy and install a new, higher-efficiency boiler in the
organization's 100-year old building, but additional funding was needed for
work required to fully upgrade the heating system.
"This new heating system has been so important to ensure we can provide a
safe, warm place for our community, especially given how cold it has been this
winter" says Ken Knutson, Business Manager for The Mustard Seed. "We've
already noted lower energy costs, too, and this new donation will help us with
the additional repairs needed."
The donation from Alberta Energy Savings is part of the Energy Savings
Group's Fund for Warmth program, which supports community-based initiatives
that help individuals in need of assistance.
"It was our pleasure to help The Mustard Seed last year and when we found
out more work was needed to finish the project, we wanted to step up again to
support the important work the group does for those in need in Edmonton." said
Ken Hartwick, President and CEO, Energy Savings Group.
