Samsung donated Energy Star appliances and monitors to the Boys & Girls Club as part of their commitment to the Energy Star program.

"We were awarded they appliances after they received our paperwork, they were so impressed what we were doing to save energy," said Michael Nelson, East Albany Boys & Girls Club Unit Director.

"We're switching to different appliances such as the computer monitors behind me, the washer, and the refrigerator," said Cody Mayers, Boys & Girls Club Volunteer.
