  • A Recent Scholarship Grant Presentation;
  • Enrolling in LIHEAP;
  • Weatherizing your home; and
  • Applying for a Wells Fargo green energy grant.

Thank you for staying connected and please feel free to call my district office at 215-952-3121, e-mail me at farnese@pasenate.com or visit 1802 S. Broad St., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you need any assistance.

And finally, this month I’ll be visiting the Lutheran Settlement House, Spring Garden Senior Center, Marconi Older Adult Program and the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center to say hi, let attendees know what’s going on in Harrisburg and to see how I can be of help. Take care and have a great week.

Yours,
Sen. Larry Farnese

Bridge Educational Foundation Grant Event

The Bridge Educational Foundation

Since I last emailed you, I had the opportunity to participate in an exciting scholarship presentation that took place at the St. Anthony of Padua School in South Philadelphia. The Bridge Educational Foundation, which is an Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) organization connecting families and schools with Pennsylvania businesses, donated more than $97,000 in scholarship money to area schools to help some great kids. It was a good day and I’d like to thank the Foundation for continuing to invest in Philadelphia’s families.

WeatherizationEnergy Coordinating Agency Can Help You Weatherize Your Home

It’s starting to get cold, so have you thought about weatherizing your home for winter?  Philadelphia’s Energy Coordinating Agency (ECA) is offering free weatherization workshops to area groups. During these sessions, a trained professional will show you how a few simple changes can save you money and make your home more comfortable all year long.  The workshops are supported by the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Housing and Community Development and the Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW).  Once the sessions are finalized more information will be available at www.ecasavesenergy.org.
