Spring to climate action – just one week left to help Martha’s Table and Habitat for Humanity green their good work

March 24, 2021

There is just one week left to donate to the Kingston Community Climate Action Fund (KCCAF) to help Martha’s Table and Habitat for Humanity Kingston Limestone Region realize projects that will green their good work.

“We appreciate all the support we have received so far, and hope that if you are in a position to give you will consider donating to the Kingston Climate Action Fund,” says Ronda Candy, Executive Director of Martha’s Table.

Martha’s Table is seeking support through the KCCAF to purchase an electric vehicle that their team will use to deliver warm, prepared meals to people in the community who need them. Habitat for Humanity is hoping to fund the purchase of four air source heat-pumps to install in new homes being built on Rose Abbey Drive. “Not only will these pumps help the home’s eventual owners by reducing energy costs, but it will also shrink the environmental footprint of these new builds,” says Cathy Borowec, Executive Director of the local Habitat for Humanity.

The City has agreed to match donations made to the KCCAF up to $15,000, and the Kingston Community Credit Union has committed to matching donations made at branch locations up to $5,000.

The window to donate closes on March 31, 2021.
