Union Hill Social and Fish Fry

June 8 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Saturday, June 8: Union Hill Social and Fish Fry to kick off Bridging the Gap solar installation and environmental health training: 3-7 pm, 1296 Union Hill Road. RSVP required to 804-248-6756.

Bridging the Gap In Virginia has received a grant from Mertz Gilmore Foundation to sponsor a solar installation and environmental health training program in the Union Hill area of Buckingham County, for the benefit of the African-American community. As you know, Union Hill struggles economically and many leave in search of work.

Our vision is to provide good jobs for the residents of Union Hill while starting a green workforce development program that mentors formerly incarcerated individuals and at-risk youth in the areas of solar installation, energy audits and conservation (i.e., weatherization, efficiency) and in-door environmental health (i.e., lead testing and encapsulation, mold remediation, and air quality monitoring).

We are beginning this week long training with a community event on Saturday June 8th from 3-7pm with a community social and fish fry at 1296 Union Hill Rd.  Please join us in this celebration for and by our community. [Please let Richard Walker know if you will join us so we can plan accordingly. His number is (804) 248-6756.]
