LED Bulb Exchange in St. George

In cooperation with the Island Institute, the St. George Community Development Corporation is looking to bring LED light bulb exchange to our community and into your home.  LED bulbs can save homeowners $100 per year in electricity costs.  Making the switch to LED eliminates toxic CFLs, decreases energy bills and decreases waste with long-lasting bulbs.  By purchasing bulbs in bulk, we as a community can unlock the potential for even more savings by making the switch.  Enroll your household today by completing the form below.

Are you ready to make the switch and save with LED Bulbs?

 

Complete the form below to be contacted about making the switch to LED Energy Saving Bulbs in your St. George home.  Buying our bulbs in bulk, as a community, allows us to save even more when making the community-wide switch.  We’ll be in touch!

2018:  The St. George Community Development Corp. is excited to announce the creation of a food pantry for residents of the peninsula. Called the St. George Community Cupboard, it will be located at 47 Main Street, in a room adjacent to the CDC’s office. 

After only 3 months in operation, the Community Cupboard was serving over 20 St. George families with more than half of those families visiting the pantry weekly.  We couldn’t have been happier with this growth.  Our shelves remained stocked thanks to the many donations from community members.

After our first 6 months in operation, the community cupboard now serves 41 St. George households.  Our growth has led us to the expected next steps which include the hiring of a Food Pantry Manager who can focus 100% on the needs of our clients and membership into the Good Shepherd Food Bank which will allow us to use donations even more wisely with their reduced food costs.

The Community Cupboard is run by local volunteers and is open for clients each week on Thursdays, except for major holidays and snowstorms. In addition to food, the pantry carries some hygiene products. We are hoping to establish some community gardens in which folks can grow food for themselves or for the pantry. If you are interested in becoming a client, in volunteering for the Cupboard, in becoming a community gardener, or in donating non-perishable goods, please stop by the Town Office, or the CDC office, or call us at 372-2193 for more information.
