WindowDressers has been bringing community volunteers together since 2010 to improve the warmth and comfort of homes, to lower heating costs, and to reduce CO2 emissions by producing low-cost insulating window inserts at community workshops throughout Maine. The organization donates an average of 20-25% of the inserts to low-income families. Since their inception, WindowDressers has produced over 27,000 insulating window inserts by utilizing over 100,000 hours of volunteer time.
With Maine VGF funding The WindowDressers, Inc. is generating at least 213 new volunteers to expand their community window-insert build workshops to six new locations across Maine: Fort Kent, Lewiston/Auburn, Augusta, Alfred, Parsonsfield, and Norway. This particular program is operating within the CNCS focus area of capacity building while also increasing volunteerism.
