GREEN DMV is working with communities, businesses and volunteers across the Greater Washington area to help rebuild neighborhoods through energy efficient solutions that help save money and the environment.

In partnership with Shiloh of Alexandria Federal Credit Union, Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority, Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities and the support of their sponsors, Home Depot, TD Bank, and Whole Foods, they are launching a project called Retrofit the DMV to help struggling families who’ve been deeply impacted the economic downturn and rising energy costs have exacerbated their financial hardships.

GREEN DMV extends an invitation to the public to attend and participate in this community effort on:
