Boys and Girls Club shines with Energy Star Program

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Environmental Protection Agency is launching an energy efficient campaign for Earth Day and using the Albany Boys and girls club as a prime example.

Friday, kids at the east Albany unit learned about the importance of conserving water and power in their homes.

Samsung donated $10,000 worth of Energy Star appliances to the club to help them become more energy efficient.

"We're teaching energy efficiency as a whole," said Brittney Gordan with the EPA Energy Star Program. "We're talking about how to save water and energy and really just to change the behavioral habits they have at home."

The EPA donated money to Boys and Girls Clubs across the country to encourage energy star programs and will feature the Albany club a national energy-efficiency promotional campaign.
