We helped create a work project at the Edmondson Trailhead in memory of Judy and Tucker Connally. CSAA Insurance Group brought out 15 volunteers to repair fences, pull weeds & renew the base of the memorial stone. Tucker's dad Jim Connally worked alongside the volunteers. ❤️ #traillove#give2trails#indygive#tosc#coloradosprings

File this under “good news”:
@indygive saw about $100,000 more than its stated goal for 2017 (collecting $1.5 million in total) in a year when charitable donations are down nationwide — and couldn't have done it without ALL the local donors.

City Parks installed signs near the summit of Mount Muscoco to help people find the trail among the rocks. Have you seen them? Are there other trails that could use signage?

Why I Give to Support Energy Resource Center:
I support the Energy Resource Center because of the long-lasting positive impact of my donations.
Donations to the ERC not only have an immediate impact, but weatherization on a home also means lower utility bills for deserving families, every month in the future. And, energy efficiency upgrades mean much more than saving on
utility bills. It also means a healthier home with cleaner indoor air and a much lower risk of carbon monoxide accidents. It means a more comfortable home with fewer drafts and cold floors. All in all, every dollar given to ERC goes a long way to fundamentally improve the lives of the families they serve.
- Jim Riggins

3 health benefits:
Carbon monoxide - to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning indoors, we test furnaces abd other gas appliances for leaks and install alarms for smoke and carbon monoxide in the home.
Stress - weatherization can reduce stress by strengthening energy affordability and sense of security.
Asthma - studies show that weatherization improvements, such as air sealing, insulation, and improved heating and cooling equiptment, can reduce asthma triggers in the home.
