Millions of volunteers will unite to improve the lives of others in their communities on Make A Difference Day of Service. The Day, October 22, is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October.
Green Iowa AmeriCorps is coordinated by the University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Energy & Environmental Education providing residential energy audit services to under-served communities across Iowa, weatherization services with free materials for low-income, elderly, veterans and persons with disabilities, and energy-related education programs to engage communities in volunteer generation. The organization was founded in 2009 to address conservation and sustainable usage of energy resources in several Iowa communities as they struggled to rebuild from the devastating floods of 2008. Since the start of the flood recovery, Green Iowa AmeriCorps has been an active community partner. Other involvement in the community includes deconstruction projects, creating energy educational programs for all ages, and assisting in the development of energy-related community events.
