Window Dressers seek volunteers for community build

ROCKINGHAM — Twenty-two homes in the Bellows Falls/Rockingham area will be warmer this winter because of a joint project by the Rockingham Energy Committee and Window Dressers, a nonprofit organization from Maine.

The staff of Window Dressers supplies, trains, and supports local teams of community volunteers as they put together affordable interior storm windows at a community build event. Recent events have been held in Brattleboro, and in the West River and Deerfield River valleys, with help from local energy committees.

The Rockingham Energy Committee is looking for more volunteers for its community build, scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 17 through Sunday, Nov. 21, with four-hour morning and afternoon shifts available at the St. Charles Parish Hall, 25 Cherry St.

No special skills are necessary. Clear protocols are followed to prevent the spread of Covid.

“Volunteers are typically motivated by wanting to help neighbors, environmental concerns, ethics of social and economic justice, a love of making things with their hands, and/or a desire to participate in a community effort producing concrete, meaningful results,” organizers write.

To volunteer, visit and look for “Rockingham/BF Community Build.”
